Neo Realism

This video essay about the film 'Terminal Station' offers a brilliant and also incredibly artful look at how the Neo-realism genre separates itself from generic Hollywood style films with its use of holding onto takes, withdrawing exposition and decentralisation of characters.

What makes the essay re-watchable and stand out from the crowd is the use of storytelling within it, the narrator of the essay actually addresses the two cuts of the films as if he has transported back in time and told two movie makers from different cultures to create a film together, it took me a while to finally figure out that this was indeed two cuts of the same film (One released in America and one in Italy) but the way that the narrator positions the essay like this makes you view the film in a different and more innovative way.

Its well worth a watch to really understand and feel the essence of Neo-Realism.
