- In Diagonal Symphony, the emphasis is on objectively analyzed movement rather than expressiveness on the surface patterning of lines into clearly defined movements, controlled by a mechanical, almost metronomic tempo. The spatial complexities and ambiguities of Richter’s film are almost non-existent here .... Above all, a sober quality of rhythm articulation remains the most pronounced quality of the film .... – Standish Lawder, "Structuralism and Movement in Experimental Film and Modern Art, l896-192l", doctoral dissertation.
