portraits of isolation

I finally got to watch The Station Agent, written and directed by Thomas McCarthy.

A trio of main characters, each dealing with their own personal isolation, cross paths when a dwarf inherits a train depot, and explore the lacuna between loneliness and friendship.

Excellent writing, directing, editing, acting - this is how films should be made.

With an ear for truth and an eye for beauty, this is easily one of my favorite films.

Go and own it.
