ignoble vs. noble?
26 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pure documentary. As pure reality film, the subjects of this film are given freedom to interact and to wander through a given time frame the documentary director chose as a span of coverage. Issues are either left resolved or unresolved at the end of the span of coverage. Thus, expect no objective, no moral goals or punchline. The correspondence remains private except for a few key letters, but we're left to observe a grounded, award-winning playwright and actor interact with persons outside the entertainment business. That said, take a board, get a bucket of paint (color is not important, but make it oil-based paint), acquire a horse-hair brush, apply paint to the wooden board--two coats, now sit back and watch it dry. Now, which was more entertaining?
