camera-work
25 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The director of photography for this film was Vilmos Zsigmond. The photography of the film is one of its strongest points. It hardly represents the work of an amateur "learning on the job". The lack of multiple cameras is most likely a result of budget constraints. This film is worthy in many respects. The time capsule aspect, the photography, and the place it sits in the history of documentary film making. It is interesting to know that the same director of photography shot both Sugarland Express and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The human bomb act is especially interesting in the light of modern times. Just thirty years ago people were blowing themselves up for entertainment. The addition of car bombs and suicide bombers in current society adds to the dating of this film. This film is also reminiscent of Endless Summer.
