DOCUMENTARY OF THE HALF YEAR
Definitely the most memorable doc I've watched in the past half year and really, one of the more memorable films. Quality wise, it's probably low on the totem pole of the new batch, but that's still saying something. The film is directed by Allan King and basically just puts a camera into the home of the Edwards family (man, woman and child) and films their day to day life, as we watch their marriage disintegrate. I love movies where the camera just rolls and the film really makes us feel like an outsider, watching something that we probably have no right to.
It should be noted that the other great doc I watched this past six months was Life Itself, the Roger Ebert doc, but didn't find it quite good enough to invite into the fold. Still...very, very good.
