In this latest installment of his ongoing video essay, “Final Thoughts,” Steve Reinke ostensibly turns to the subject of friendship. Using found footage collages, digital animation and cell phone video, Reinke sets forth theories about the identity of Stephen King and Joyce Carol Oates, needle point doodles, the upsides of owning both US and Canadian citizenship, and the ability of corpses to have sex.
