An intriguing, disappointingly seen film
27 September 2006 | by TylerHauserSee all my reviews

While it meanders in places, Life Classes certainly deserves better than the film festivals-> awards-> disappearance fate it received. It serves as a contemporary Forrest Gump of the Art School world where the heroine manages to discover a relevance through the contemporary (1987 Performance) art scene.

While it is a deliberately paced piece, it allows the viewer to wallow in the kind of empty life so many poorly payed single mothers endure for the welfare of their children. Yet the message of the piece remains one of optimism in the ability of art to transform an empty life into one of meaning.

Hopefully the forthcoming DVD garners it some attention.
