Robert Kramer removes into interesting creative territories, as the necessity of every human being to feel attached with something or someone in his life, exploring the places where he comes from, NY and all the Route One becomes a personal cosmos of people, believing, sadness and sometimes small births of hope. Just take your time and see Cinema going through someone's heart & spirit, is the kind of film where you can feel honesty and true love for film making, as a way of life, as a way to to survive into a really confuse world everywhere around. Doc is just someone looking into himself and looking for something to get attached with, trying to get a meaning for his own existence. The people, the places, the film-maker and all the team behind becomes one with his film to offer to us one of the best documentaries ever made.
