Intimate, revealing, philosophical, spiced with dollops of whimsy—these are qualities associated with the work of the late, legendary documentarian Albert Maysles (Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens), and his final film (co-directed with Lynn True, Nelson Walker, David Usui and Ben Wu) has them in spades. On a three-day train trip from Chicago to Seattle, the team—through encounters with other passengers—captures a snapshot of American life. "Lovely… A folk odyssey through northern landscapes that proves a fitting farewell to an American ethnographer."—Variety
