short film anthologies rarely work - and this one doesn't really... but then again individually these films are all interesting and kept me involved.
the Aki Kaurismäki short is the weak link here.
both Spike Lee and Werner Herzogs documentary take on the theme of time are super interesting and really strongly capture each directors interests.
the Jim Jarmusch film was elegant and effortless, and it is always lovely to see Greta Gerwig. the creme on the cake must be drug addled Wim Wenders vision that very easily could have been set in the same world as Paris Texas.
Victor Erice has most effectively captured the idea of time in his black and white Cuban countryside, whilst Chen Kaige gave a typically screwball Chinese vision of a past that has been forsaken for construction at all costs.
