Tony Judt on the modern railway: "The very notion of society existing in terms of classes, in terms of collective life, public and private space, cities and the relationship between city and country; the idea of time, of time as something that organizes us rather than we organizing it--these were all railway creations." (The Nation, May 17, 2010, pp. 18--21).

Thanks for the references and this post brought to mind the stunning railway scene in Pather Panchali by Satyajit Ray. I just noticed Ray was asst. to Renoir in your most recent film post on The River.

Excellent post, although I believe you missed one.

What film was it...?

Oh, that's right, Mother and Son. It's just barely in the frame, though, more of a puff of smoke than anything. Aside from that one omission I think you've got them all. Excellent work.

it has been a while since i have seen that film, i don't remember it too well. keep wanting to see again because i remember liking it, can't stand his other films though to be honest, but i like the idea of the russian ark, but the film itself is kind of mediocre.
i am working on the next train post now, have about 60 frames so far, need another 40 or so.
