For a long time, the hardest to see of the films of Nicholas Ray (Johnny Guitar, Rebel without a Cause), We Can’t Go Home Again was a collaboration with Ray’s filmmaking students at Harpur College. In a flurry of multiple images, Ray charts the transition from the confrontational radicalism of the late Sixties to the entrenchment and search for self-image of the early Seventies. “The film captures the fleeting breath of a utopian experience: when life as a community undertaking and cinema as a collective creation are one” (Victor Erice, filmmaker).
