WE CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN

Ray | 1970-2011 | US | 93m

“NYFF Masterworks”

9:00 at FSLC

“The line between what is and is not real in We Can’t Go Home Again is more than just a blur: it’s downright schizophrenic. The images overlap with ethereal majesty, at times highly literal and others deeply ambiguous. It is image overload, and only sensation and emotion exist: narrative is dead, logic unknown, time disrupted, and identity discontinuous. The subversion that was always present in Ray’s most successful Hollywood productions explodes… the film feel fresh and vigorous (and vertiginous and obscure) some thirty-odd years later.”
Cullen Gallagher, Not Coming To A Theater Near You [Read More]
