Road to Nowhere Directed by Monte Hellman

Critics reviews

Monte Hellman uses the porous agility of digital video to highlight the duration and the mechanical states of the world, keeping all the seconds necessary for a hair blower to dry the fresh nail polish on the protagonist, or the slow process of the mechanical arm that locates a song in a jukebox. Like Jean- Luc Godard or David Lynch . . . Monte Hellman lives with his time without ever becoming his creature.
