Movie Info

The saga of Ross McElwee, filmmaker, continues with this almost-sequel to Sherman's March. The expat Southerner has finally managed to find a kindred soul to marry (another filmmaker, Marilyn Levene) and things seem to be going swimmingly. Then the couple are hit with a rapid-fire series of family tragedies that send McElwee into deep contemplation. Time Indefinite is a bittersweet journey, however, full of the self-deprecating humor and observational skill that made Sherman's March such a treat. The title is a phrase from the Bible, read aloud as part of a diatribe by a Jehovah's Witness at the door, which strikes Ross as particularly lovely. The third film of this (so far) trilogy is Six O'Clock News.

Critic Reviews for Time Indefinite

All Critics (5)

If Sherman's March is McElwee's meditation on eros, then Time Indefinite is his thanatopsis.

The title's a bit of a tipoff: This is McElwee trying to be a little too serious.

Heartbreakingly touching and lovely.
