Photographic Memory2012

  • 3.9
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).

This is laughably narcissistic McElwee, an homage not only arising out of his self referential, self-conscious persona but also misinformed by tragically clueless parenting.

Not great, but good.
