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

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.

Feels somewhat disjointed, meandering, seemingly random and chaotic, but filled with fleeting moments of coherence, wonder and awe, much like life itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.0/10

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.
Bill Weber
Slant Magazine
March 15, 2009
Suggests that either video artist Michel Auder culled the wrong footage from a lifetime of compulsive camera-wielding for this "fictional autobiography," or was saddled by fate or egoism with an inapt subject.

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

In a rare moment of personal illumination, he admits that "sometimes there are artists who are just no good." If nothing else, The Feature proves this statement.
