Storyline

Danish documentarian Jørgen Leth revisits the theme and poetic style of his earlier film '66 Scenes from America' and finds in the faces, skylines, and roadside attractions of the United States a perfect post-September 11 salute to what makes the country great: not ideologies or flag waving, but eccentricity, idiosyncrasy, and individuality.
