The enigma of Jaglom is clearer to me after seeing this film.
5 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having see a couple of Jaglom films in the past and having heard about him here & there, it was good to have those who have known & worked with him for years speak honestly. The footage of him working on various films and going about his life rounded out the picture of him very skillfully. I came away thinking that he is a very creative but exceptionally self-centered individual and that he is not particularly evolved in his attitudes towards women. He also seems quite abusive towards his actors generally. I only pray that the younger generation of filmmakers (particularly men)will not continue in his manner. Only thus will we begin to see 'experimental' films which have a humanized point of view which is inspiring without being sentimental.
