One of the Greatest US documentaries
18 September 2020 | by Robert-1984See all my reviews

Kramer is arguably one of the most over looked film artists from the U.S. In this film he comes back from his self exile to document the East coast. He moves along route one and presents us with the myriad communities, cultures and sub-cultures that he meets. The result is a four hour document attesting the richness of the U.S landscape.

Kramer's position towards the U.S political system is critical and his personal history places him within the critical anarchist left, and this film and its presentation of the depth and richness of the people who live on the land, shows us how much potential there is in society when you look beyond the forces that have come to dominate its public sphere. A definite "must watch"!
