Critic Reviews for Home Movie
Smith finds amusing juxtapositions that justify his exercise.
Mr. Smith makes us look afresh at our own digs and at, as the old saying goes, what makes a house a home.
At just over an hour, Home Movie will leave you wanting more, not to mention leaving you with some laughs and a smile on your face.
I like this movie a lot. I like that Smith, he's not making fun of these people, he's not laughing at them.
[Smith] simply celebrates the universal desire to fashion our homes for our needs and desires.
Smith is careful not to make fun of these curious owners of architectural oddities. Instead, he shows them the respect they are due.
Audience Reviews for Home Movie
Documentary about five different homes and the people who live in them. I particularly liked the pragmatic Japanese-sitcom-acting Hawaiian lady and her treehouse in the middle of nowhere, but all five had their qualities, not least a conviction in their way of living that was engaging to watch. I like unconventional people. Ben Skora's soap dish was freaky though. From HENRIKSCHUNK's favourites list
Fascinating documentary depicting lives of people who have a 'special' and unusual way of creating their immediate home. Be at the man living on a boat in the everglades, the cat family or the kooky inventor who plans to be reborn in a humanoid robot he built.
An entertaining, yet enlighting view of how people are able to construct their lives according to their own beliefs and imaginations.
Chris Smith's follow up to "American Movie" is not quite as good, but interesting to say the least. He does a very good job at finding some of the most interesting (and sometimes odd) people of our culture and capturing them on camera.
