Description: Looping, chugging and barreling by, the trains in Benning's recent monumental movie map a stunning topography and a history of American development. RR comes three decades after Benning and Bette Gordon made The United States of America (1975), a cinematic adventure along the country’s interstates that is keenly aware “of superhighways and railroad tracks as American public symbols.” A political essay responding to the economic histories of trains as instruments in a culture of hyper-consumption, RR articulates its concern most explicitly when Eisenhower's military-industrial complex speech is heard as a mile long coal train passes through eastern Wyoming. Benning spent two and a half years collecting two hundred and sixteen shots of trains, forty-three of which appear in RR. The locomotives' varying colors, speeds, vectors, and reverberations are charged with visual thrills, romance and a nostalgia heightened by Benning's declaration that this will be his last work in 16mm film.

This early TV series, produced aboard the marine research vessel 'Calypso', catalogues what is more or less Jacques-Yves Cousteau in Wonderland.After a military career as a naval officer spanning the Second Globe War, during which Cousteau and Emile Gagnan developed some of the earliest serviceable scuba diving apparatus, he found the sponsorship to promote and facilitate his lifelong fascination with the wildlife of the oceans.Through the medium of the movies he made, we were able to accompany this remarkably gifted and resourceful individual as he explores various maritime habitats across the world.Like one of the crew, we follow - episode by episode - as Captain Cousteau leads us into fresh underwater habitats and introduces us to many various species and illuminates their daily lives, we share their enthusiasms and disappointments.In many episodes, the narration (in English editions) is by Jacques Cousteu, himself. Saying the stories of the animals he has discovered and the progress of his own understanding in his own words and his own way.Jacques-Yves Cousteau showed a generation how to receive to know, love and protect the precious natural environment which lay beneath the surface of the water.These ground-breaking wildlife documentary movies set the tone for everything that came after them.
I vividly remember watching this present with an almost religious fervor. As I recall, there were generally about 4-6 shows produced every year during it's run, and every was everytime worth watching. Some ended up being fairly premature given more newest developments in different aspects of the science, but most were generally very well founded and provided fresh insights into some of the conditions of marine life and sea life behaviors.Near the end of the run, it became more schmaltzy and wasn't as interesting as the early shows, but that should be just me growing from age 10 to age 17. It turns out that it also gave us variety of idiosyncratic and stereotypical culture references that different humorists have been using for decades.
This is one of the least exciting episodes you'll see of "The Undersea Globe of Jacques Cousteau". This doesn't mean it's bad-- just not as exciting as most. It's also among the earliest episodes in this fabulous series.There are two main subject in this show--the most necessary of which is the Cousteau squad trying out a fresh mini sub. They already had one but contracted for a pair of newer ones--subs able to dive deeper and go faster. You see the people putting it through its paces...and this is cute dull stuff. Additionally, the squad comes upon a lot of pretty Green Sea Turtles and you not only see them under water but also laying and hatching eggs. And, in the spirit of these old shows, the team become involved---rescuing some of the baby turtles that would been surely eaten since these guys had the misfortune to be hatched during broad daylight so that the Frigate Birds should easy see them and eat them.
