Stations of the Elevated


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. “A beautifully photographed study… (Mingus’) music is composed like a series of city still-lifes. Certain images linger: the battered train reading ‘Heaven is Life, Earth is Hell,’ rumbling through the South Bronx, or a smiling billboard face fragmented by the shadowy structure of the Brooklyn Bridge.” — Marita Sturken, AFTERIMAGE
