A Lost World by tboot December 17, 2007 - 11:14 AM PST

"Parallel Lines" is a road movie, a tender, sometimes heartbreaking and often funny portrait of a country still reeling from 9/11. Davenport, a lifelong New Yorker, was in San Diego when the planes hit the World Trade Center. In fact, her apartment had a direct view of the towers. A few weeks later, she drives back to the East Coast -- too afraid to fly, and more than a little trepidatious to return -- asking people along the way what they think about 9/11. And boy do they have a lot to say, though it often has little to do with her question. Cowboys, kids, convenience store clerks and greasy spoon waitresses -- unforgettable people, still pretty raw, very ready to speak their minds and hearts and full of surprises. An extraordinarily moving document of what now, sadly, seems like a simpler, more innocent time and place -- a lost world.

something like documentary
personal, experimental, and beautiful films that (i think) smartly challenge the conventions of documentary
