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.'
Don't expect a good film, because it isn't. It's like the series big brother, constantly focusing on daily life. While I was waiting for something meaningful to happen, something to finally draw me into the film and enjoy it. But this moment never came. The throwing around with filmed hints and details of the main figures just gets boring. Why? Because you never get to connect with these people. The music is quite nice, but nothing is really developing in the film itself. You just see and hear fragments of the life of the main characters that happened before. And then in the end, there is a sick twist. The film promises a portrait of ordinary people under extreme circumstances. But actually it's a boring film about a bunch of extremely sad characters in everyday situations. Except for the end, that is. Nothing in it for me. All in all: it's just a film about time passing by, accented by small or big events until it's time to die. A waste of my time it was.
