Synopsis

Filmmaker Ross McElwee finds himself in frequent conflict with his son, a young adult who seems addicted to and distracted by the virtual worlds of the internet. To understand his fractured love for his son, McElwee travels back to St. Quay-Portrieux in Brittany for the first time in decades to retrace his own journey into adulthood. A meditation on the passing of time, the praxis of photography and film, and the digital versus analog divide.

In the end, I went with Skyfall, but it was close. More...

Featured DVD Review: Photographic Memory

Photographic Memory is the latest documentary made by Ross McElwee, whose previous documentaries include Bright Leaves and Sherman's March, both of which did well during Awards Season. This film opened last October and earned near perfect reviews, but went nowhere at the box office. Does it deserve to find a bigger audience on the home market? Or is it just too limited in scope to find a wider audience? More...
