Audience Reviews for News From Home

  • May 16, 2011
    "News from Home" is an intriguing film made by Chantal Akerman in response to her mother's letters which are read aloud. Instead of replying in words, she replies in images of 1970's New York City to give a sense what her life in the new city is like while reminding those of us living in 2011 what the city of the time looked like. Aside from the occasional job, it would seem to consist of a lot of riding the IRT subway.(Man! Look at all that graffiti.) While Akerman might be in motion, the camera usually remains in place, except for a pan around Times Square Station. And in observing people and places around the city, she dutifully avoids the tourist sites until the final shot, probably from the Staten Island Ferry.
