Art or documentary?
21 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

This was the most abstract documentary I think I have ever seen. While it may seem very real at first, with those few *WEIRD* artistic inserts by mother/filmmaker Camille Billops. You should make sure that you know that it is almost entirely re-enacted material. The movie was made ten years after they met up, so keep that in mind, and don't take anything at face value. (Notice the *WRITER* credit! That just doesn't belong in documentary)
