Imagine what Albert Brooks would be like if he was 26 years old in 2013, with a Canon 5D and all the attendant hopes and dreams of a young man who cannot fail, despite his best efforts. That's 'Spencer.'

I saw this movie twice. On the first take I made it to first 20 minutes and thought it was great. It was a late night broadcast and especially two things got me; poetic storytelling, which doesn't need too much action, or people describing what's-going-on. Second thing was the music performed by Judy Kuhn and John Medeski; so calm and pleasing and yet very strongly supporting the movie. So I bought the DVD, since I had no chance to see this at our local cinema. I really enjoyed watching those people with their fates. Even if it wouldn't go anywhere, I'd still like it. And it DID go somewhere, which is the worse thing on this piece. Not that it's predictable (well... is it? ;), but after the 1st half we'll get some corny and some cliché. First half 10/10, second 5/10. All and all 7/10.
And now I NEED to get that soundtrack. ;)
