    Minding the Gap

    This amazing documentary is the real Boyhood.

    The amazing level of access to this film’s subjects push it into same league as Hoop Dreams and The Up films.

    If you didn’t like the first three, no need to watch this. Move along.

    If you enjoy these movies, you are in for a treat.

    This isn't a documentary; it is a eulogy delivered by a ghost.

    It contains no new interviews because it is pieced together entirely from self hypnosis tapes that Brando had been making for decades.

    This movie is truly one of a kind and feels more like a Terrence Malick film than a celebrity biopic.

    And to make the whole affair even more surreal, it is presided over and narrated by his disembodied CGI head.

    Tarkovsky on acid filtered through a thick layer of prog-rock.

    A truly unique experience.
