“Freedom is what I’m doin’ right now. ”

““Freedom is what I’m doin’ right now. Sittin’ down and talkin’ to you,” says Jesse Ruiz, one subject of MURDERERS, a man who had just spent eight and a half years in penitentiary for beating another man to death in Alphabet City with a Louisville Slugger. “Outside prison; this is freedom.” Freedom has perhaps never been so succinctly, convincingly, defined.” From David Velasco’s remarkable Artforum review of Lyon’s films at the Anthology Film Archive http://artforum.com/film/id=20599
