With so little action or even insight, Marathon is far too long at only 74 minutes.
It makes for a satisfyingly excruciating experience.
The real star ... is Michael Simmonds, whose manic black-and-white camerawork captures the unique vibrancy of New York City.
A portrait of a certain urbanite mind and a city whose tolerance of anonymity provides a perfect stage for compulsion, neuroses and the fulfillment of hidden needs.
The beauty of Mr. Naderi's filmmaking lies in his combination of acute social observation and pure, almost mathematical formalism.
Marathon offers one of the most inventive reimaginings of the MTA since D.A. Pennebaker's 1953 cine-poem Daybreak Express.
We need to endure rather a lot of amateurish filmmaking to get to the raw, important story that's being told
A visual valentine to New York subways and streets as well as a meditation on the universal human yearning to test ourselves against self-imposed limits..
Marathon contains nothing more than its thin premise.
What really makes the film work is Paul's striking performance.
A minimalist's dream film, "Marathon" should be able to find a small but very devoted group of fans, eager to experience something quiet and thought-provoking.
Crossword mavens may enjoy it, but it's too monomaniacal for comfort.
