Twenty Cigarettes, 2011 - ★★★★

It's so rare to be able to take the time to just look at something. Here we are presented with 20 people smoking a cigarette, one after another with no introductions, explanations and next to no dialogue. Occasionally we hear sounds off screen, frequently the subject sees something but Benning's camera never moves away from the faces. The results are completely fascinating.
