Brilliant Bittersweet Stories
30 November 2004 | by (Central MA) – See all my reviews

It really is a bittersweet film; the individual stories are fascinating, and Jeffrey has such a vibrant personality. And he's never bitter, he doesn't take himself to seriously; there's no preaching, just recollections.

I stumbled across it late at night on the Sundance channel. My mother and I watched it together; she said it reminded her of the way her cousin talks of his past. It gives you an intimate feeling, like he's just sitting down with you and chatting, like you could share some of your own stories with him. There is nothing theatrical - it is at times grainy and/or over-contrasted. It's a camera, a friend asking questions, and a man answering them while he smokes endless cigarettes. And it works. To anyone who knows real life is far more interesting than fiction, this is one to see.
