Stations of the Elevated Pt. 3 of 5

STATIONS OF THE ELEVATED (1979) is an astonishingly beautiful film about graffiti-covered trains hurtling through a strange urban landscape of a decaying civilization. The music of Charles Mingus counterpoints the recurring visual riffs of the tension-filled imagery. Steve's film teacher at SVA filmed the movie, Manfred Kirchheimer...This segment is my favorite part with the bench of writers' comments and also mattress jumping from abandoned buildings...
