Undivided Attention follows a couple driving across Canada in a top–down coupe. With cameras strapped to everything from typewriter carriages to shovels, this absorbing, feature–length non–narrative film forces viewers to question the authority of their own perceptions. It places all points of view on an equal level, which allows us to consider the extent to which identity itself is determined and reinforced by the position one looks from. Undivided Attention, the director’s eighth film, is also a helluva visual trip, well worth it, even if only for the ride.
