Turgid boring vanity project by self obsessed auteur.
19 May 2013 | by ptb-8See all my reviews

The hour of Living is 112 minutes of genuine dead screen cinema. Whoever Sebastian Michael is, let's hope he never makes another film again and spends all his remaining hours of living working for a charity instead. Here is a 20 minute story that is palatable and interesting if it was a 20minute film. .....instead we have this pretentious meandering drivel wholly devoted to the face and writings of Mr Michael with endless long medium and extreme close ups of himself and young Theo all lovingly gazing about, smoking, sitting on a bench, all interrupted by the worst jangling harmonica songs by some wandering minstrel pal who appears in the film and sings some silly song about whatever we have just seen. All written, produced, directed, starring Mr Michael which must have been utter hell for anyone foolish enough to have agreed to work by his side, especially in the editing booth, since there is almost NO editing of any scene shot....The Hour Of Living is a text book case of how NOT to make a film and foist this on any unsuspecting audience. it had NO life on DVD and even in a Gay film fest this tedious pretentious and utterly preposterous film demands that the audience adore Mr Michaels genius which expires with the first song near the first overlong scene of two people just chit chatting.
