Getting Evidence

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 28, 2015

It’s been a while since we’ve had that unseemly, unpleasant, cavalier quality in the Edison films in this exemplary dvd collection. But it’s back.  The photographer is the protagonist, sort of, at least structurally. But he’s up to no good, and he’s approaching his dubious task with a grating insistence and sameness. The bourgeois population that he’s investigating isn’t too attractive either. The beach chase is pretty great though.
