Critic Reviews for William Eggleston in the Real World
An uncannily revealing portrait of a major American artist at work, all the more remarkable for the deceptive casualness with which it unfolds, as if Almereyda had just shown up.
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).
The result isn't particularly mesmerizing, but it does offer a well-rounded portrait that will be of particular interest to photography lovers.
Eggleston's rigor might be mistaken for languor, but Almereyda has just the temperament to get it right.
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.
