Unfortunately, the doc about Lipsett doesn’t nearly have the power (or succinctness) of the films that are referenced. A series of talking head interviews trace the story of this maverick filmmaker (starting with an extremely brief soundbyte from George Lucas that seems to have been tacked on), the film has nothing of the experimental flourishes of Lipsett’s cinema.

Overly long, with stories that end up going nowhere, the filmmaker is clearly to close to the subject (his friend Arthur), and this eulogy does little but hold up his closest friends to scrutiny that is not sustainable.
