Talking to Strangers Directed by Rob Tregenza

Critics reviews

The sheer and overt virtuosity and sinuosity of the filmmaking—nine shots, done with a craning, roving, tracking 35mm camera, each running an entire thousand-foot reel of film (and each, according to Tregenza’s website, was done only once, with no second take)—is all the more remarkable in relation to the “story,” to the experience, activity, and ambition of its protagonist.

Part of the presumption of Rob Tregenza’s Talking to Strangers is that when strangers meet, they immediately and automatically fall into a kind of role-playing, a form of lying. But one of the many radical differences between this movie and most others is that it doesn’t establish any privileged source of truth about its characters’ identities in order to allow us to measure the extent of their lying. We see what these characters do, but we remain strangers to who and what they are.
