Better than so-so
1 June 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I'm so-so is a documentary which works primarily because of the interesting subject and his familiarity with its director. It runs for 50+ minutes but is strategically divided into implicit chapters, each bookmarked by a short visual of Krzysztof Kieslowski saying how he feels that morning. Kieslowski, for the relatively short amount of time he made films, became a darling of the serious cinema buff. He created characters that had immense depth in their respective, flawed lives.

With I'm so-so, Krzysztof Wierzbicki (a one-time assistant to Kieslowski) picks individual films of his and works his way through some of the philosophies and ideas associated with them. Films like Camera Buff and Blind Chance are lesser known of Kieslowski's works and they get quite a bit of interest here. They somehow skip past much of Decalogue and the Red and White parts of the Colour Trilogy. But that is not really a major problem. Kieslowski displays a lively sense of humour and appears very comfortable talking about his films. Along with Werner Herzog's My Best Fiend, this is a great film about films and is a must-watch for all film students - serious or otherwise.
