This painting is divided into three horizontal scenes – reminiscent of a film reel. The top level is a city skyline, the middle level is a tribute to film noir, and the bottom level records urban sprawl – strip mall, with generic titles of stores.

Have you ever seen the movie The Third Man, or a more recent film called Sin City? Have you ever seen Route 7 (Leesburg Pike in Falls Church, Virginia)? If yes, then you know what this painting is all about. If no, go see the films and visit this strip mall.
