Movie Info

Director Andrea Kreuzhage explores the "1000 Journals Project" launched by San Francisco graphic artist known as Someguy in this film that combines the storytelling of a documentary film with the thrill of a well-written detective story. Fascinated by the bizarre scribbling on bathroom walls and other public spaces that people choose to express themselves, Someguy disseminated the first of 1000 blank journals in August of 2000. As the books slowly made the rounds from person to person, the blank pages were filled with all sorts of ephemera including rants, stories, messages, and personal musings. Later, after 9/11, the pages of the journals began reflecting the grief of a defining event in our nation's history. Three years after the project began, only one of the journals had made its way back to San Francisco. This story documents Kreuzhage's globe-hopping quest to discover just what happened to the other 999 journals.

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

1000 Journals has a catchy hook, and Kreuzhage showed tenacity in following many difficult trails, but the movie plods.

Top Critic

Though the film is short, the subject it tracks is somewhat unwieldy, and you can almost feel the hands of writer/director/producer Andrea Kreuzhage stretching to fit it all in -- a Herculean task.

Audience Reviews for 1000 Journals

A great documentary about a project, having journals being a great source to bring people and there lives close together and showing things about themselves, that awakens, and helps give people closure. At the same time shows art can be very diversified than most people realize. I recommend this documentary to those journal/diary writers and those creative arts that struggle with there walls.
