One of the best avant-garde shots of New York since Andy Warhol's EMPIRE. Its realism comes from the 1970s experiment on minimalism by Akerman et.al., but somehow, the tinge of this film is not merely to document what the camera can see but to dwell into the feelings, the emotional resonance it produces.
(...) "I filmed the city from the aerial tramway connecting Roosevelt Island and Manhattan: the outward trip, a shot of Wall Street at nightfall when it was snowing a bit, and the return trip. The only noise you could hear was a woman's stiletto heels, which reinforced the feeling of solitude, with scenery like in the Fritz Lang film Metropolis".
It also remind me of Jean-Luc Godard´s Alphaville.
