Notes:
PAL format. “Alice in the Cities” starts with its protagonist in the United States, doing a report on the real America of the road, but, with his insistence on making images rather than writing, he gets fired. Marooned in New York while awaiting a flight to Germany, he meets a woman and her young daughter. The woman goes off on a road trip of her own, leaving the man to bring the girl back to Germany—a West Germany that’s infused with the artifacts and moods of American pop culture. - The New Yorker. Won 1974 German Critics Prize. Music by Can. First of the “road trilogy” followed by WRONG MOVE (1975), and KINGS OF THE ROAD (1976). Supplemental features include: audio commentary by Dr. Adrian Martin.
