Movie Info

When Elan and Jonathan lose their beloved grandmother, Annette, they face a profound question: When a loved one dies, what do we do with the things they leave behind? Turning documentary on its head, the Bogaríns embark on a magical-realist journey to discover who their grandmother really was, transforming her cluttered New Jersey home of 71 years into a visually exquisite ruin where tchotchkes become artifacts, and the siblings become archaeologists. With help from physicists, curators and archivists-and the added inspiration of a decade of interviews with the vivacious octogenarian herself-they excavate the extraordinary universe contained in Annette's home. 306 HOLLYWOOD playfully transforms the dusty fragments of an unassuming life into an epic metaphor for the nature of time, memory and history.

At the risk of being indelicate, Grandma's life - well-lived but ordinary - doesn't make for a very compelling documentary.

Opening up about those messy feelings in an unconventional way as 306 Hollywood does not only feels cathartic, but necessary.

Sep 28, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"306 Hollywood" makes for morbid, at times insufferable viewing. But its solipsism is part of its message.

306 Hollywood makes a strong case that nothing is too ordinary to be transformed and elevated by art.

Annette blooms into a vivid presence - more so than her living descendants, whose khaki safari outfits and stage-y narration about the passage of time tilt things a bit too twee.
