  6. Cassie's rating of the film News From Home

  7. Diderot's rating of the film News From Home

    I love this movie more than I expected. A fascinating rumination on city life, loneliness, family, curiosity, looking, anonymity, and (now) the nature of time and its relation to space (among any other number of thoughts that might run through your head).

  8. EdieEmm's rating of the film News From Home

    Saw this 3rd on a dvd after La Chambre & Hotel Monterey, and in some ways it’s a cross between them: The autobiographical tempered by/juxtaposed against the impersonal/mechanical, and - as importantly - vice versa. Speech vs soundscape; insight vs image... And a deliciously iconic & culturally definitive depiction of 70s NYC (that subway platform 40 min in!) captured via Akerman's unique outsider inside perspective.

  10. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film News From Home

    Akerman captivates with simple images of city life juxtaposed with letters from her mother. Sometime the narration is drowned out by the sounds of the city, like losing connection to her mother with her life as an artist, a theme she would explore through her entire career.

  11. Robert Orlowski's rating of the film News From Home

  12. LAB ARBUTA's rating of the film News From Home

  13. AugusteB's rating of the film News From Home

    Sometimes this film is just its ingredients: the city New York and the letters from the mother. But at the end when the ship leaves the city it all comes together to a brilliant art movie installation cinema therapy experience.

  14. LauraPalmer's rating of the film News From Home

    What is FILMMAKING? This is a perfect example.

  15. Sander Moyson's rating of the film News From Home

    We are always on the move, but where is our home and where is our mother, waiting silently, loving silently?

  16. Loud Rocks's rating of the film News From Home

  17. Mihai Cristea's rating of the film News From Home

  19. Ale/M's rating of the film News From Home

  20. Renton47's rating of the film News From Home

    Sometimes I'm an asshole and I don't call my Mum enough and sometimes I screen her calls when I'm watching a movie or having a drink with friends. Then sometimes I get annoyed when I need to go to the country to see them, because I like the anonymity of the city and hate feeling tethered to the identity they attach to me. They worry and care about me, which should be enough for me to make an effort to please them.

  21. Andrew Miller's rating of the film News From Home

    Achingly poignant now that Akerman has passed-- no more news forthcoming.

  22. Gonçalo Araújo's rating of the film News From Home

  23. Abstructures's rating of the film News From Home

    Immediately after watching, I was bashing pretty hard on this film. But then, something happened. It started slowly growing into me. The next day I couldn't stop thinking about its majesty.

  24. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film News From Home

    Como sucedía en "Yo, tú, él, ella", Akerman apela a una narrativa epistolar. Es su madre enviando noticias desde casa. La información de familiares enfermos, compromisos que se forman y se rompen, la bonanza o crisis del negocio familiar, una niña que crece. Es también la madre que menciona las vivencias de la directora en NY. Un filme en donde el tiempo transcurre y la lectura de cartas construye una historia.
