I saw a rough cut of this at the Portland Experimental Film Festival,and while largely unedited, the footage I saw was some of the morehonest and moving I've seen all year. While revolving around afictional narrative, the film was shot in real locations(all of themlarge shopping multiplexes), and I ...
Jem Cohen's Chain is an interesting conceit; like the Christopher Guestfilms, it pretends to be a documentary, but unlike those blatantlyfraudulent comedies, you do not know Chain is fiction until the endingcredits and even then, you do not know to what extent.The "plot," of which there is not much,...
In a chain, one element leads to another which leads to another andthere is little change from one element to the next. It is this ideathat Chain portrays well. With shots of shopping malls, highways, andoffice parks from around the country, Chain shows how uniform Americanculture has become with th...
Though I watched this film only on TV, I was easily hypnotized by itsbeautiful pictures, its timing, and its sound. It's like a JamesBenning film with people in it. The film doesn't hurry you to getfamiliar with its two female characters and to take part in theirlives. It might feel boring. But it m...

You don't have to wait for the final credits of "Chain" to see that JemCohen was funded by the New York Foundation for the Arts as it ispainfully obvious that this is an artsy New Yorker's discovery of themalling of the country and that he read "Nickel and Dimed: On (Not)Getting By in America" by Ba...
I really had high hopes for this movie. In the description this filmappeared to be one of the off-beat-but-poignant films that I love.However, this proved not to be the case. From the drawn-out openingscene until the anti-climactic end, "Chain" was about as exciting aswatching paint sit in a can...i...
Endless shots of malls and hotels. The annoying student art film of JemCohen, better known for REM videos. Here are the allegedly parallelstories of a 31 year old Japanese business woman scouting forinvestment partners in the US for her "Corporation", verses a homelessAmerican teenage runaway girl's...
This could be a compelling documentary, if it was a documentary. Mostof the scenes of the characters seemed staged… because they were. I didlike what I learned about the characters. We see one characterstruggling with homelessness and joblessness. We see the waning of theother's excitement abou...
