Get the filmmaker out of the way
on July 15, 2009
I really wanted to see how these hermits lived, their day-to-day existence. You do see some of that, but the American filmmaker feels compelled to take up screen time himself, beyond what's necessary to frame the theme of the film. It's clearly early work, and the photography is good, but I'd like to see what he was able to make after another 10-20 years experience as a filmmaker. He should try again then; someone really should make an extensive record while these people are still around.
