North on Evers

James Benning's 1991 experimental feature, an account of a cross-country motorbike trip with continuously moving narrative subtitles that are most often either ahead of or behind the images. Difficult to digest as a whole but fascinating to grapple with, this film is rich with memories, political reflections, portraits of friends and family members, and comments on what's been happening to this country. “I wanted it to be a film of one-night stands,” Benning has said, a statement that's borne out by the dislocations and discontinuities—as well as the locations and continuities, which include both flashbacks and flash-forwards. 87 min.
