Quote: “THE BEST DOCUMENTARIES HAVE THIS IN COMMON …
.… They are about human short-comings, about the chasm between dreams and deeds, about people who want to but cannot.
Or can, but don’t want.
They are, therefore, about something that is unfinished, unfulfilled, incomplete.
They are about the melancholy of the impossible or the prohibited, but they are also about the enjoyment and the pleasure of every step in the right direction, or of challenging or flirting with what we call fate.
The good documentary balances on the knife-edge of life.”
