A rigid long shot of a landscape, at the center, an overgrown train track, then the image shakes, evoking movement: split screen, contrasts between dynamic and standstill, color and black-and-white: From the photograph via the film and back to the train. Siegfried A. Fruhauf spans that media-historical arc that represents his work as a whole — but seldom is it so relaxed and psychedelic as in Phantom Ride Phantom.
