  1. chanandre's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    "I'm dennis hopper, I am a filmmaker, a painter, a poet, an actor and I ocasioanlly ride a motor bike">#irony/John Cale's score and cameo. Maysles smile & especially John Ashbery's delighfully beautiful poem and sad face>made a perfect 'sad smiley emoji' kinda like Lilian Gish's sad face on "Broken Blossoms"/Caesar salad=seasaw salad ♥ as said by Leth's cute accent :P Wenders, Andersen, Herzog & Antonioni were here.

  2. Stefan Drees's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    The slow and meditative pacing of this documentary together with the still life photography is incredible. But I disliked the music.

  3. Leandro Querido's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    Un gran trabajo etnográfico. Minimalista y respetuoso de 66 Scenes from América. A great etnographic work. Minimalist and respectful of 66 Scenes from América.

  4. Kartik's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    Some very interesting shots that move at a slow but steady pace, that goes perfectly with the minimalism. At times it felt more narration would've helped give the film some more substance. The diversity in shots coupled with having the subjects talk about themselves was a nice touch. You might, however, feel let down by the passiveness in making a statement - I was, to an extent.

  5. Nicolás Raigorodsky's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    Wonderfully melancholic homage to America, and specially to NYC and its cultural symbols, just after 9/11 2001

  6. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    Interesting way of looking at the essence of Americana.

  7. irises's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    jorgen leth is a man without humor himself but not without the remarkable capacity to recognise it... just like how you don't have to be funny to write a poem... this I love in a man. he said it himself... his propensity to "perfectly frame" things... this overframing, this perfectionism that leads to his signature emptiness in his movies. what a brilliant and beautiful little movie.

  8. Lorenzogranada's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    Absolutely great. Revisiting 66 scenes from America through a much more decanted aesthetic line, Leth creates an image of America through eccentricity, individuality and simbolism

  9. Jacques de Villiers's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    A profoundly affecting monument to some people and things - both living and gone - that make up America.

  10. Ray Kril's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    A meditative poetic portrait of people and places Americana. great to see Robert Frank and Dennis Hopper appear.

  11. anarresti's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    21 years after "66 Scenes From America", Jørgen Leth goes to the USA again and films the same objects and places and, in some cases, the same people, producing New Scenes From America. The acesthetics is now even closer to what portraits could be like. The camera, this time, is always still, every object and person always "facing" it. We can try to look for clues of the passage of time in this close up exercize.

  12. msmichel's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    America seen through the eyes of a foreign filmmaker concentrating on the contrast between city scape and rural, between the artists and the so-called common people and between space and object. Superficial and unengaing yes but poetic nonetheless.

  13. Sunrise's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    Poetic and intriguing juxtapositions convey a portrait of "America" in which Leth is able to capture the thematic continuity of American culture through an emphasis on creation and consumption at the country's points of the worldly intersection, while also quietly suggesting an agenda to remake an "Easy Rider" that is applicable to the early 2000s.

  14. RaySquirrel's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    Is '66 Scenes from America' available to watch anywhere?

  15. Mighty Quinn's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    A real slow burner, but it contains some striking landscapes and intersting juxtapositions, making it worth your time if you can manage to maintain interest after the first five minutes. Look out for some famous faces as well.

  16. Hani's rating of the film New Scenes from America

  17. tSherrell's rating of the film New Scenes from America

    Does it take great discipline to create art within such a minimalist methodology? Personally, the temptation to add more rather than stay true would be too great. Leth's quiet, thought provoking film is beautiful in its cinematography, pacing, as well as poetic narration. A thought provoking gem.
