  • Un film de James Benning

Ce film montre comment le rail a modelé à la fois le territoire américain et l'image cinématographique.

As with "Ten Skies" and "13 Lakes" before it, James Benning’s new film "RR" forms great ideas and unexpectedly voluptuous beauty out of modest and strict means, content, and style. Composed entirely of 16mm still shots of train tracks, each shot roughly beginning a beat or two before a train enters the frame and lasting until roughly a beat or two after after the train has left, "RR" is both more rigid and concrete than the undulating abstraction of "Ten Skies", as well as more directly grounded in reality and the cinema.
