Wow, why can't more movies be like this
7 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes ... I give this a 10/10 ... check my movie list and you'll see I do not give many.

Glenn Small an architect, a father, video-biographied by his daughter, a young woman whose two sisters and mothers were left by Small who seemed to repeat this pattern. Family, friends come and go, but the work is there forever he says. You can tell Small has some talent and passion for architecture, and a certain charisma that allowed him, not much of a success in life, to have many relationships with women, two families, and inspire many architectural students.

This movie has so many contradictions in it, it is sort of maddening, until you realize, it is not just a movie. This is the kind of movie that we should all be seeing more of. This is a first ... a close in examination of spaces in a life ... a bit like the movie "My Architect" whose producer son had a similar experience ... what is it with these architects anyway.

Very good movie, I recommend it, I respect the creator for having the courage, the heart and the wit to make this movie and present it with clarity and objectivity. Wow.
