Certain filmmakers demand that we come to an understanding of their films simply by watching them. That is, they teach us how to make sense of their structure once we give them our attention. The title is a bit of a pun. Our understanding of the film builds from moment to moment. The film is equal to the completion of its given task. However, it is also people-oriented. It contains notions of “home” and “away.” It waves hello to passing kids. Think of it as working class structuralism.
