Late in this meandering film, Rogers' romantic infidelities and the onset of illness add some much-needed dynamics, but even when it's just shooting the breeze, The Windmill Movie is captivating.

Although the format will be familiar to fans of Tarnation and Capturing the Friedmans, the result comes closer to Fellini's autobiographical 8 1/2.

A remarkable documentary attempt to reconcile Rogers's sense of personal, professional, and artistic malaise, which culminated in his decades-long attempt to make a film about his life.

Olch doesn't make it easy to identify with Rogers and his stylish existence, but that choice begins to pay off gradually as the fragments start to add up to something more.

There hasn't been as good a film of this type in this country since Tarnation, which means Olch's movie is a treat and a surprise no one should pass on.

From the wall-to-wall piano score to Rogers' tedious navel-gazing, The Windmill Movie renders prosaic and pretentious the churning conflict behind the process of artistic creation.

The examined life may be the only one worth living, but as The Windmill Movie profoundly illustrates, it's no guarantee of happiness.

A warm portrait of the fascinating Richard P. Rogers, an experimental filmmaker.

A mind-bending autobiography by proxy.

The Windmill Movie is a version of the autobiography of Richard P. Rogers that might have been.

In finishing what was left undone, Olch's tribute to his mentor is more an act of hubris than humility.
