Block wears his neuroses so guilelessly on his sleeve and organizes his material with such skill, that what might have been insufferable navel-gazing attains poignancy.
Maybe being able to look back in time is comforting for Block and company, but what makes him think complete strangers give a damn about his not-especially-interesting family?
A chronicle of ordinary life that is partly a scrapbook, partly a memoir and, most movingly, an essay on the passage of time and the mysterious connections between parents and children.
Block intended this movie as a loving portrait of his relationship with his daughter. Instead, it's a reflection, and not always a kind one, of the man behind the camera.
The same qualities that sometimes make The Kids Grow Up tough to watch also make it irresistible.
By experiencing Block's films, we aren't merely witnessing his neurosis, we're abetting and validating it.
Assembled with clarity and taste, "The Kids Grow Up" is a beautiful film in which every single minute feels alive and true.
A very slow and easygoing look at the simplest things in life, which turn out to be not so simple. Have a cup of coffee before this one.
Regardless of the cause, the prevalence of empty-nest anxiety among baby boomers isn't terribly flattering to their conception of domestic relationships.
Ranks as one of the best non-fiction films of the year.
Unwittingly provides a glimpse of the unhealthy and potentially damaging parental desire to preserve and memorialize every second of family life.
A poignant, honest and voyeuristic quest filled with insight and humor.
Interesting doc about the relationship between a father & daughter (a whole family really) and how they grow together and how they deal with saying goodbye before she leaves for college (and adulthood).
