Canadian Pacific


Rental Format(s): 16mm

"Went to the Single Frame Dance program at Film Forum. I liked two films. One was James Herbert's Apalachee ... the other film I liked was David Rimmer's CANADIAN PACIFIC.

"CANADIAN PACIFIC is a one-shot film, or rather one shot that is made up of a series of slowly dissolved shots done from the same camera angle, same framing, during a period of several weeks. Camera frames a window with a railway yard in the foreground, a bay in the space behind it, and misty mountains in the extreme distance (top part of picture). Trains occasionally pass by in the foreground. Huge ships move across the bay. Blue mists hover over the mountain heads. Very impeccably executed, very formal film. But its formalism is very unimposing, like in a Hudson School painting. I'm looking forward to seeing it again." - Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice
