11 X 14 (1977) NYFF 2018

65 individual shots across America.

This is a film you will either click with or not. Simply unconnected shots arranged in some sort of order this is film you either go with to find your own deeper meaning or you go to sleep to with it's often static" nature.  To be certain some shots are more thrilling, the 10 minute extended take looking out of a Chicago elevated train for example, others are simply sort of there, the gas station at night that follows the subway.

I'm not going to pretend to know how you are going to react to this film. I was up and down with it. Some bits I loved, others I hated. This is not my normal cup of tea but I was given the chance to see it so I did.

If you like to see things more on the avant garde side of film give it a shot. Other wise take a pass.
