Stream of consciousness...
22 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had watched this twice on Sundance, the first time wondering what was the point.

Bruce Weber's pastiche is really just that. An abstract of his moments, people he has known, 9/11, Liz Taylor, a can of Chef Boyardee, his friend dying of AIDS. Dirk Bogarde, Haitian oppression, Rin Tin-Tin, his summer house, the beautiful dogs, romping on the beach.

I first saw this during a loss of my own, imminent divorce. Thinking of war, there are no clear answers. This film works if only to get a smattering of someones life; at least this is reality TV worth watching, the personalities are noteworthy.

If you are not a stickler for theme, and are a dog lover you may enjoy this. It is recommended as long as you are a creative person who can go with the flow.
