personal movie, but long
4 November 2001 | by (Providence) – See all my reviews

This movie seems personal to Julia, not made for the audience. There was a certain point where the audience simply could not receive any more information, but the video kept going on and on. I realize that this was partially due to the fact that Julia wanted to emphasize the monotony and repetition of her parents everyday life, but I got the point in the first hour, I didn't need a whole extra hour to realize the monotony. I did find it interesting though that all the project she later showed including the subway and wight lifters all incorporated repetition. I think that without even realizing it she was influenced in her later project by her documentary of her family.
