This film and its predecessors are a mirror to all.

Though no one perspective is universal, 63 Up's remains admirably considered, sweeping, and reflective, which is all just as it should be. It's less an elegy than an ode to life.

If you're coming to the series cold, there's enough filmed background to get you up to speed. And if you've become hooked at some point over the years, 63 Up makes for essential viewing.

The steadfast subjects-10 men and, still shockingly, only four women-have gone through the usual life changes.

The participants in Michael Apted's ongoing social experiment, which began with "Seven Up!" in 1964 and has become increasingly fascinating, have reached the age where they can see the approaching exit sign in their lives.
