Critic Reviews for The First Film
A personal 30-year quest by filmmaker Wilkinson to get to the bottom of an astonishing omission from film history, this documentary plays out like an urgent mystery.
The doc isn't especially cinematic but you can't help but admire the dogged passion with which Wilkinson has pursued his subject.
Alas, Wilkinson's presenting style is a bit Alan Partridge and he just isn't very good at making the story come alive on screen.
A flickering story that blends intrigue, industrial espionage, and possibly even murder.
This is a meticulously researched investigation into the achievements and mysterious disappearance of Le Prince, who vanished without trace while travelling on the Dijon-Paris express in September 1890.
