  • As a subject, he's reluctant to navel gaze, and his words -- subtitled because of his low, mumbling speech -- rarely provide an insight into his talent.

  • William Eggleston in the Real World offers an admiring and affectionate, if also unillusioned, view of its subject at work, play, and not much of anything (a suitably Egglestonian activity).

    December 2, 2005 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The result isn't particularly mesmerizing, but it does offer a well-rounded portrait that will be of particular interest to photography lovers.

    September 22, 2005
  • Eggleston's rigor might be mistaken for languor, but Almereyda has just the temperament to get it right.

    September 2, 2005 | Rating: 3/4
  • Ultimately, biodoc is less about Eggleston living in the 'real world' than about Almereyda filming there.

  • Consistently more intriguing than Almereyda's recent documentary of a Sam Shepard play rehearsal (This So-Called Disaster), in part due to the subject's taciturn nature and his disinterest in the hows and the wherefores of his craft.
