The country of Georgia, as the Loneliest Planet, “A mysterious feeling courses through us” (Hani Furstenberg) may some describe the journey perhaps not best taken. A lone man dances, but not so much on the floor of the small, out-of-the-way pub. “Hot Girls, Alcohol, & Myself,” his pretty shirt either an un-understood philosophy of dis-compassion for others, or only all he could afford. If you have done things like this, travel to foreign countries, the boy and the girl also at times eat of the peace & beauty of vacation and no other motive at the rawest form of the gentle beast. Flower-blossoms & a roll down hills such as a small child, a guide who vows the rest of his eternal life on the stretched out land of a near abandoned roll of prairies void of human-kind, alongside a hiking trail of Tibetan tundra challenge.
A film which decries an aspect of the interactive, the couch-dwellers verses Jurassic Park, basically no intermission exists within the walls of the film. Red haired, vibrant Nica (Hani Furstenberg), out on the precipice of an undaunted wilderness felt so free as she a poster child for the film adapted from McSweeney’s writer, Tom Bissell who wrote the movie-inspired short story Expensive Trips Nowhere, published in his collection God Lives In St. Petersburg. So the awards won by the independent foreign film maker, Julia Loktev, showed the film at the premiere of the work of art, Locarno International Film Festival, The Toronto International Film Festival, & The New York Film Festival.
The film won out at the AFI Fest in Los Angeles, CA. Strangest film that I ever did see now, sung to the tune of Up On Cripple Creek (1969) written by Band guitarist and principal songwriter Robbie Robertson, with drummer Levon Helm who sang lead vocal.
A distance of sweaters & warm shirts and a journey yet unrenowned, and of things that match light, the headiness of the altitude makes her read her love to sleep at night, speaking perfect English at the evening of the summer light. Some things about the film you love, and few you grow to hate such as the flatulent tent and you begin to remember why on that one. They three whether by an also perfect will to abandonment, entrap themselves by means of a delightful entertainment. She teaches them by her words and her thoughts full of life everything by the wee hour moon. Some quarell style of plot language, along with the strength of the dinetics of the plot wave, matches the strength of the couple to go on. The skin, the body & the psyche of the award-winning film, from which cherry pies & baseball clearly non-present, as if the cure for the land an absent rubel on the name of America, the lights on the wall of one shore. The film ends with the couple silently trying to decipher as existential the next set of lessons among them. This seems to come from the same kind of research used while they walked and hiked. A raw carte blanche, scenes such as the cold nature swim makes for a good venue on the sight of soft summer waterhole, and all that a day such as this brings forth.
