Critic Reviews for Obit
OBIT, the new documentary from director Vanessa Gould, lingers at the newspaper's death-desk to think through the meaning of remembrance, and to show the workday of these uncommon journalists.
Gould secures plenty of nuts-and-bolts detail about the reporting and writing process, which can range from novelistic use of detail to the prosaic but no less critical matter of confirming the death itself.
Documentarian Vanessa Gould leads her viewer by the hand through the day in a life of the darling weirdos at The New York Times obituary desk.
Obit is a fascinating, if slightly too long, look at newspaper journalism in general and obituaries in particular.
