“Train Station” (2015)

The core concept was very simple and yet ambitious at the same time; get several different directors, crews and actors, from varying different cultures, to film a three to five-minute segment that branches off of a previous segment. It’s certainly an interesting experiment, but a coherent story, this film is not, unsurprisingly. Most of the individual segments are alright, but the constant shifting of actors keeps jarring me out of the story, and some of the plot developments contradict in different segments. Still, even though the final product doesn’t fully work, especially as the film’s climax clumsily tries to tie everything together, this is such an interesting experiment that I would actually recommend this film to anyone who’s at all interested in it.
