Better Than the Film It's Documenting

Don't Expect Too Much (2011)

*** (out of 4)

This is a pretty fascinating documentary from director Susan Ray, wife of Nicholas, who takes a look back at her husband's experimental film WE CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN. Before watching this documentary I took a look at the film in question and I must admit that it didn't work for me. After seeing this documentary I wish I had watched this first as it really does explain what Ray was trying to do with that student film. What I enjoyed most about this was hearing from countless crew members who actually worked with Ray on WE CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN. I thought it was rather fascinating hearing from these film students who were getting an education from a professional director who had worked with all sorts of legends in his time. There's no doubt that Ray was down on his luck by the time he took that teaching job but you wouldn't know it by hearing the stories from the students. It's clear that all of them were very touched to be working with Ray and it seems that he taught them everything that he could. Another good thing is that we get a brief interview with the last surviving cast member from REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. Clocking in at just over an hour, this documentary is certain better than the film it's talking about. I think fans of Ray should really enjoy this and I'd recommend watching it before WE CAN'T GO HOME AGAIN.
