Citation :
« The Far Shore operates through conventional modes of tragic melodrama, not only in its narrative form but also in its deployment of the cinematic vocabulary of the silent era. Griffithian cross-cutting in the chase scene, use of off-screen space and inscription of archetypal characters in the narrative signify the film's observance of filmic practices from the historical period in which the narrative is situated. The use of silent-era dramatic structures and film language demonstrates once again the multifarious and richly heterogenous arrows in [Joyce] Wieland's creative quiver. »
