mildly interesting
31 October 2000 | by (Alameda, CA) – See all my reviews

In an 80 minutes film with 18 interviewees, it's impossible for Toback to go more than skin deep with his philosophical inquiries. In fact, the content is one of the least interesting aspects of the film. More intriguing is how he managed to edit together 18 people's stories into one seamless dialogue, and how he played around with the lighting and composition of each of his subjects (many are cast in drastic shadows or glowing angelic hues).
