In Movie Theaters the Week of July 24th, 2006

O. Winston Link took elegant black-and-white nighttime photographs of the last of the great steam locomotives, as they chugged majestically across small-town America in the 1950s.

A curmudgeon and "paranoid-schizophrenic and manic-depressive" (according to one of his closest friends), Link married Conchita Mendoza when he was 73 and she 48. From there the story could be told by Stephen King: Conchita successfully marketed the photographs for increasing profit while becoming sexually entangled with another man - all the time keeping Link captive and incommunicado in his basement darkroom!

"I can't move the sun - and it's always in the wrong place - and I can't even move the tracks, so I had to create my own environment through lighting."

Paul Yule's film is a fascinating investigation into personality, crime, marriage, contemporary art, and the ever-malleable nature of truth.
