Brakeless

The Independent Lens documentary Brakeless investigates what led the driver of a Japanese commuter train to accelerate perilously, causing a deadly crash. Piecing together personal accounts of those affected by the tragedy, Brakeless poses a question for a society that equates speed with progress: have the national virtues of punctuality and compliance become dangerous?

      Watching the Detropia segment on Independent Lens made me sad for the City I spent the first 17 years of my life growing up in. My only criticism is to the captions … too white / washed out and the type font too blurry to read without getting out of my chair and standing a foot from the television screen.
