梗概
2000年春节,在陕西省宝鸡市火车站附近的垃圾台上,聚集着一群流浪汉。他们来自全国各地,白天,他们在城市里满无目的地游荡,晚上就住在铁路边。平常他们拣点垃圾和旅客扔下的瓶子,然后换点钱吃饭。
这群人里,有大四川周富,他在城里打工,回家路上丢了钱和身份证;李小龙和火红昌(大家叫他火狐狸,只有8岁)都是从家里跑出来;小云南替人放蜂,一天夜里,老板走了,三年的工资一分钱都没付;凤翔说自己是因为婚事和家人闹矛盾才跑了出来。
夏天来了,这里发生了戏剧性变化。小云南成了这儿的孩子头儿,小龙被一个公安叔收养,租了房子住;他们告诉我其它人的下落:大四川疯掉了,常在街上脱光了衣服跳舞;火狐狸被送回家,很快又跑了出来;凤翔偷东西被抓住了。最后我还意外地看到孙岁雄,他被收容站剃了光头,拒绝我再拍他……

短评
杜海滨,电影学院的叛徒还是新生力量?《铁路沿线》,新纪录片的旗帜还是地基?在历史洗刷一切之前,我们无法回答这样的问题。我们仅仅知道,在杜海滨路过宝鸡火车站并偶然决定拍摄的那一刻,他走上了电影技术和情感的新路。
他拍摄了一群睡在宝鸡火车站附近的流浪汉,他们蓬头垢面,以捡垃圾为生;没有人在乎他们的存在,社会遮蔽了他们的形象,并将他们异化为没有声音和姓名、没有感情和过去未来,没有家庭和故事,也永远不能通过媒体被我们认同的一群。
而杜海滨端着DV进入了他们的生活。记录,而不是高高在上的同情或调查。他在糟糕的技术条件下坚持了记录者的敏锐,让影片的粗糙感对应了宝鸡火车站一带的杂草、风、市民、垃圾和垃圾一样的生活;他强调了节奏和影像的结构,让沉闷平凡的镜头变得引人入胜……这部电影的价值,尤其体现在杜海滨的同学公开声称“纪录片不是艺术”的年代,显然,它将使我们重新思考——究竟什么是艺术,什么是艺术的美学立场、形式进步和精神力量。
