And one wonders why this hasn't released yet...
15 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Picture a compilation of your own family home videos, complete with little cameo appearances by your father's various coworkers and associates, and this is essentially what you've got. I had the unique privilege of having attended a private family screening of this work in a little Hollywood Blvd theater, so the highlight of my evening was in meeting Lightfield's father, character actor Geoffrey Lewis, and actress/rocker sister Juliette Lewis.

The great part about the coworkers and industry colleagues is that they're famous actors like Cuba and Brooke. I just wish they showed up that night, too. The video quality was indicative of an early Eighties video recorder, shot by your typical adolescent kid. However you knew from the beginning that it was different from your own home videos, from the famous father to the cameo interviews to the large Los Angeles suburb home.

The public may never see this; but like my own home videos, unless you really know the family, you'd probably end up falling asleep on the couch, too!
