"Going home -- from west to east; return. Part of a series of turning points. recording a journal in color language; shadows of faces. Realities and memories come out frame by frame. The rhythm of a summer vacation. Rituals of light to dark -- manifesting form. This is a translation of old friends and old places. A ticket home. This film journal resembles the memory charged visual fragments of a cross country trip to the filmmakers home. He calls it a respectful portrait of old friends and old places but tensions filled images combined with the rambling chant and urban ambience of its soundtrack indicates that a more anxious attitude, perhaps toward a fleeting present, underlies this personal document and ticket home." -- Lynn Corcoran, Media Study, Buffalo "Snippets of sunsoaked home movie footage, jumbled around kinetically, become a wild whorl of color and motion that's like watching the spin cycle in a washing machine. Dominic Angerame, with this film, gives you the distinct impression that someone's handling their childhood memories on a silver platter." -- Frank Young, The Tallahassee Flambeau
