DIRECTOR: Albert Maysles, Lynn True, David Usui, Nelson Walker III, Benjamin Wu TUESDAY FILM SERIES

Journey into the hearts and minds of passengers aboard the Empire Builder, America's busiest long-distance train route.

At 76 minutes, the movie may seem modest, but there are shades of Jack Kerouac and Studs Terkel in its chronicler's ambitions, and echoes of John Ford in its portrayal of how Americans form communities.
Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
Late Maysles beautifully passes the baton of his direct cinema. . . Celebration of his knack for making people comfortable enough to offer heartfelt and natural revelations.
