California Dreams (2017)
Critic Reviews for California Dreams
Ott has artfully constructed a slippery hall of human mirrors, testing and subverting the rules of empathy in documentary and narrative cinema alike.
A film filled with badly acted scenes that doesn't really go anywhere, has no real narrative or structure or momentum or even anything coherent to say.
It's a movie that won't hold your hand for you, but after watching you'll want to grab onto it so that it may continue to take you on its odd journey. Even with all the constructed elements, it feels very authentic in a way that few films do.
Call this by whatever name you choose - hybrid documentary, scripted reality, narrative nonfiction, etc. - it's endlessly fascinating, regardless.
"California Dreams" remains like a tumbleweed and never reveals its purpose.
