A hypnotically involving film based on the genuinely novel idea of stitching together shots taken over a six-year period in 11 American states and six countries.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Jem Cohen's nightmarish portrait of a deracinated world includes footage shot over 10 years in several countries but cut together so seamlessly that the film seems to unfold in a single, continuous strip of malls, hotels and airports.

Jem Cohen's visually haunting film deliberately blurs the lines between fiction, documentary and cinematic essay.

Both Nikaido and her untrained co-star, Mira Billotte, do too good a job at portraying ennui and Chain suffers as much as it succeeds from it.

What might have been highly effective as a nonfiction short is extended way beyond its dramatic possibilities, and the narrative structure Cohen has devised adds little to the overall effect.

It's still thought-provoking, but not quite as profound as it pretends to be.
