Kevin Jerome Everson’s monument of durational cinema immerses viewers in the inner workings of a factory that produces bowling-alley equipment—a full eight-hour workday experienced in real time. Entrancing, meditative, and totally enveloping, PARK LANES unfolds according to the rhythms and rituals of the workers whose shifts it patiently documents, their quotidian tasks taking on a profound significance. The result is one of the most perceptive films ever made about labor and one of modern cinema’s most singular achievements.
