Movie Info

While Sarah Price was producing the documentary American Movie in 1995, she spent a year living in the Milwaukee neighborhood of Caesar's Park, and became fascinated with her often eccentric neighbors. Price took a camera to the neighborhood and began shooting profiles on the people of the community; after American Movie was finally wrapped, she took her footage into the editing room, and Caesar's Park is the result. In Caesar's Park, we're introduced to Charles, a self-taught musician whose enthusiasm outstrips his technique; Richard, a mentally retarded gentlemen who devotes his days to carefully photographing the details of the neighborhood; a pair of middle-aged sisters who still live in the house where they grew up and look after their ailing mother; an elderly couple who found romance after a chance meeting at the city water department; and Genevieve, a woman from Poland who came to America when she married a U.S. serviceman (and acquired the vocabulary of a truck driver along the way). Caesar's Park was shown at the 2000 Chicago Film Festival.

By the end, the film resonates with a quiet loneliness.

Sarah Price captures a small slice of their lives with compassion and dignity.

December 8, 2002 | Rating: 4/5

[This] slow-moving and meditative documentary is strangely intriguing, yet ultimately fails to satisfy.
