CGiii Comment

Idealism has never been explored in such a bizarre way.
This is a curiosity - everything refuses to sit comfortably.
Some will say it's genius, the idealists.
Others will call it junk - the realists.
Curious, though.


The(ir) Blurb...

Individualistic and idealistic architect Howard Roark is expelled from college because his designs fail to fit with existing architectural thinking. He seems unemployable but finally lands a job with like-minded Henry Cameron, however within a few years Cameron drinks himself to death, warning Roark that the same fate awaits unless he compromises his ideals. Roark is determined to retain his artistic integrity at all costs.
