"One of the most widely praised American avant-garde films in recent years, James Benning's 1976 feature is a laconic mosaic of single-shot sequences, each offering some sort of image/sound pun or paradox. At once a crypto-narrative with an abstract, peekaboo storyline and a fractured, painterly study of the American midwestern landscape, ‘11x14’ points toward the creation of a new, non-literary but populist cinema." - J. Hoberman, Village Voice
