student film done horribly wrong
7 September 2005 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

out of focus. bad sound recording. bad sound mixing. bad framing. bad white balance. and that was the technical problems... pretentious narration mixed with interaction with subject. bad recording on narration. no storytelling. bad verite mixed with regurgitated biographical dribble. takes too long. no character exploration until last 15 min which was completely useless and then simply abandoned.

i would not recommend this film to anyone. i didn't leave early simply because i prayed that sitting through the first 80 minutes of this film would yield 6 minutes of something worthwhile. the answer unfortunately is no.
