Possibly the hippest film ever made -- not on film
Who would have thought anyone could make something this engaging and cinematic with a toy Fisher-Price camera? ANOTHER GIRL, ANOTHER PLANET is one of those rare movies that has very little narrative, but such perfect-pitch atmosphere and -- well, soul -- that it makes a little nest in the back of your brain and settles down there for the rest of your life. Almereyda uses the shallow depth of field of the Pixelvision camera to explode cinematic space in ways no one with a Panavision camera ever could. Not to mention that the soundtrack is a killer time capsule of the hippest songs of the early Nineties. Once seen (and heard), never forgotten.
