"This Is It" is a 9-minute live action short film from 1970, so this one is already over 45 years old. The director is James Broughton and he was in his 50s already when he shot this little film. I see that the kid we see from start to finish is Orion Broughton, so it's probably his grandson (maybe even his son still). The film takes us on a journey with the little boy and we see the world through his eyes while we hear very basic comments on the particular situation. I think it was okay for an experimental film and I have seen many worse from the genre, but I still believe that the film is really too personal to be interesting to general audiences. It is a solid addition to a family history collection, but as a film I cannot really see the appeal. That's why I give it a thumbs-down. Not recommended.
