This movie really seems to get by on the fumes of its concept, because the actual execution seems vague in a way that the worst kind of holiday films are.
So glad I finally caught this. Not only does it contain such a treasure trove of movies that you want to revisit or seek out, but it really gives you another way to watch films. The documentary aspect of fiction films is (was) not a new idea, but I’ve never seen it treated with such discipline and intensity. Even the next day I was thinking about a project of my own and the films ideas on representation and place made me question and dig deeper into my own ideas.
