    Tie Xi Qu: West of the Tracks

    I did it. I sat down and watched the whole thing over the course of a week. And thank god that it happens to be one of the best films I've ever seen because if not I would have said it was a waste of time.

    Tie Xi Qu: West of the Tracks is a massive undertaking for such an obviously low budget production. It's shot on an early handheld digital with the mic presumably strapped onto the camera. Now,…

    All of Godard's films are about filmmaking more or less, but this is one of his most direct confrontations with the medium he both loves and criticizes. I think what grounds the often emotionally superficial feeling of the main story is the playful way that he disrupts the editing or mise-en-scene. One shouldn't view the film like The Player, which is to say as a film that sharply critiques the industry, but as a acutely self-aware filmmaking process about the…

    This is the most cynical corporate product imaginable. There’s nothing beyond references, shitty puns, and the most horrendous computer effects imaginable.
