It is OK to make a sentimental family movie - but it is not polite to bother other people by distributing it! "Vanity" is the word that describes this movie. However, it asks couple of questions: are the artists really incapable of talking about their own work (no, not all of them, I believe)? Second, does Patti Smith really believe that her art will survive her - i.e. human being is mortal, poetry is immortal?
