A little self-absorbed, 9 November 2004
Author: Brandon Arnold from United States

Perhaps I should watch it again, but as a lover of documentary films I was disappointed in this. The self-reflexive nature was interesting, but the director spent so much time sharing every minute detail of his film-making process, the subject matter became obscured and confused. Also, I've got no problems with breaking the rules through recreation for the sake of film-making, but if you're going to stage a scene in a "verite" documentary, at least try and make it look real. And the long, meandering discussions of literature got a little tedious. The film could have been a nice, tight 45 minute/hour-long doc, but as it is you could fast forward through most of it and get the point with out really missing anything particularly interesting or enlightening.

That said, kudos for the attempt. Gotta respect his enthusiasm, and making a film isn't easy. I didn't enjoy it, but obviously many others did. Then again, I'm not much of a reader.
