I TRAVEL BECAUSE I HAVE TO I COME BACK BECAUSE I LOVE YOU
Gomes & Aïnouz | 2009 |
Brazil | 75m
7:30 at Exit Art

“Road movies don’t get any purer. A visual reverie that is Bressonian in its austerity and transcendence, only with truck-stop hookers. The film consists of a succession of subjective shots of the passing landscape and seemingly endless highway. This initially patience-taxing monotony slyly builds into a portrait of bitter heartsickness over a recent breakup, as well as a meditation on the destructive potential of movement for movement’s sake. Like the best trips, I Travel goes places that couldn’t have been anticipated.”
Mark Holcomb, The Village Voice [Read More]
