Movie Info

Filmmaker Michel Auder teams with Andrew Neel to construct this patchwork retrospective detailing 40 years in his own life and the lives of his closest friends. Assembled from over 5,000 hours of footage, the film offers viewers a glimpse into Auder's unique world. From conversations with Andy Warhol and other stars to run-ins with ex-wives Viva and Cindy Sherman as well as encounters with a whole host of family and friends, Auder's autobiography gradually becomes a kaleidoscopic journey into the underworld told with idiosyncratic flair. Woven into the uniquely constructed tale is the story of the subject's struggle against an illness that may prove fatal.

  • It is a profoundly indulgent work -- what three-hour filmed memoir wouldn't be? -- but the memory of Auder's memory will linger on for the handful of resilient experimental-film fans who see it.

  • Michel Auder has been making videos longer than almost anyone, and that alone makes the work of this underappreciated artist and filmmaker worth attending to.

  • Auder's life is more interesting than his art.

  • Essentially a collection of home movies, it's almost a dictionary definition of "self-indulgent," filled with famous faces, naked people and what certain celebrities mean to Auder.

    Jan 5, 2009 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Its pseudo-fiction saves the film from itself in a perverse kind of way.

    Oct 3, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A pixilated portrait of a life lived and captured unlike any other.
