Rezensionen

Perlentaucher-Notiz zur TAZ-Rezension

Das Titelzitat verweist den Rezensenten auf Robert Frank. Wie Frank, so verrät Lennart Laberenz, vermisst Christopher Morris die amerikanische Gesellschaft im kollektiven Katerzustand ab 2010. Zu sehen ist in den Porträts laut Laberenz die miese Ernährung, die Ernüchterung, die Ratlosigkeit und Leere. Aber auch die übriggebliebenen nunmehr leeren Posen. Das alles zeigt Morris laut Laberenz ohne Pathos, mit klaren Linien und anders als Frank, ohne ein Lächeln auf den Gesichtern.
