Storyline

Forty year old documentary filmmaker Ross McElwee has a penchant for filming everything around him. Following the announcement of his impending marriage to his film-making partner Marilyn Levine - marriage something that he and his family never thought would happen for him - McElwee turns on the camera to film life as it happens in respect to this new phase in his life. Both in real terms (as it applies to himself and those around him) and philosophical terms, McElwee discusses, through self-narration, life, death, love, family and babies. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Ross McElwee: My brother took this slide of his patient's breast tumor for his medical records. It's horrifying that this woman was attacked by this awful tumor. But I can't stop thinking about this image on a whole other level, having to do with denial. She simply denied she had this thing on her body; pretended it wasn't there. I mean, it's kind of like death itself, you know, this huge, grotesque thing that stares us in the face, but somehow we manage to deny it, to abstract it. Which is also what happens...

Does anyone care about Ross McElwee's life except Ross McElwee? Having seen several of his movies (I took a course in documentaries, and the instructor was enamored of the oh-so-twee McElwee), I can honestly say that I don't. I don't care about his family; I don't care about his wife; and most of all, I don't care about him. Some find his meandering self-explorations charming; they're just boring. And I can't recommend this film to anyone unless they are very willing to waste two hours of their life.
