We Can't Go Home Again1973

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.4
The most complete, newly restored version of Nicholas Ray's experimental masterpiece, made with his students at the State University of New York at Binghamton, WE CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN embodies Ray's approach to filmmaking as a communal way of life. The film records Ray's groundbreaking use of multiple image as a way of telling more than one story simultaneously and of colorization as a way to heighten emotional expression. He called it a "journalistic" film, one that shares the anthropologists' aim of recording the "history, progress, manners, morals and mores of everyday life" at a critical moment in American history. Ray plays himself in the film, serving as mentor, friend and reference point around whom the students' stories constellate.

couldn't get into this story

As someone who has been experimenting with picture-in-picture as of late, this was invaluable.
