Jamie Stuart‘s third N.Y. Film Festival piece takes way too long to load…way. But once it’s up and running you can feel a Terrence Malick/Thin Red Line/”never met a leaf I didn’t like” influence.

The piece is mainly about leaves, water (dripping, ponds, gutter currents), ducks, construction scaffolding, the evident boredom on Tommy Lee Jones‘ face, the usual atmospheric space music, more construction sites, joiners, the evident boredom being felt by Jamie Stuart, bolts, wing nuts, plywood, shots of sky and clouds.

The best part is a one-on-one of Todd Haynes (director of I’m Not There) talking about capturing the style, mood and attitude of ’60s-era films and photography.
