Movie Info

Return to the Scene of the Crime, 2008. USA. Ken Jacobs.Jacobs's return to a single scene from the 1905 short Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son-which he first disassembled in his 1969 masterpiece of the same name-could easily be titled "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Scene." An avant-gardist's comedy, Return roguishly riffs on thirteen distinct styles, revealing, distorting, interpreting, and even misinterpreting the hundreds of actions in a single scene-as painting, abstraction, allegory, and, ultimately, as ballet. It's a wry, roving, and joyous ode to movies. 92 min. New York premiere. --© Anthology Archives

The contemplative rigor Return brings to concepts of imagery and technology yields rewards if you're willing to work for them.
