In Train Again, Peter Tscherkassky’s ecstatic homage to Kurt Kren, the found-footage master reflects once again on the essential connection of railroad and cinema machine. This time he has the modern means of transportation race full force into catastrophe. Disorientation, neurasthenia, shock—a space-and-time-destroying mechanical monstrosity on a collision course.
