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.

Critic Reviews for The Feature

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

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.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

Auder's life is more interesting than his art.

Top Critic

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.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

A pixilated portrait of a life lived and captured unlike any other.

Boxoffice Magazine

Feels somewhat disjointed, meandering, seemingly random and chaotic, but filled with fleeting moments of coherence, wonder and awe, much like life itself.
