    Never thought I’d be lucky enough to ever catch this on 35mm. Very thankful for that. Print was from ‘07, looked beautiful. Absolutely love this weirdo dream of a movie.

    Absolutely loved this. A really special snapshot of Chicago. Cinematography by Tak Fujimoto! Love the docu-style and how they even incorporated real life events like Mayor Daley’s funeral procession. There’s an excellent timelapse sequence too. Shot pre-Chicago Film Office in the Southside, you get a look at a side of Chicago you don’t normally see on film. I love the looseness of the narrative and the emphasis on the music.

    Not streaming anywhere but you can rent/buy it on Vimeo, highly highly recommend giving it a shot.
