Marion Stokes secretly recorded television 24 hours a day for 30 years from 1975 until her death in 2012. For Marion taping was a form of activism to seek the truth, and she believed that a comprehensive archive of the media would be invaluable for future generations. Her visionary and maddening project nearly tore her family apart, but now her 70,000 VHS tapes are being digitized and they'll be searchable online.
This film bothered me. It was opaque, meandering, and as didactic & strident as the subject itself. Marion was an interesting cat, in a way, from her early political views, not for her being an OCD news junkie in the last 30 years of her life. I wish I had these 90 minutes back. It didn't provide any type of a meditation on life or whatever it was seeking through her 'collections.'
