Jonathan Caouette was an inveterate filmer from a very young age, and in an effort to piece together his broken childhood, he edited fragments of footage using iMovie. The result is anything but amateur, as this one-of-a-kind film takes us deep into the realm of psychic disarray.
The film connects you to what a state of psychosis might feel like. It’s both a tender tribute to a troubled mother, and an attempt to use the power of film to heal the wounds left from a dysfunctional childhood. With unforgettable performances and kaleidoscopically intense editing, this film could rival any experimental fiction film and yet, its power resides in its firm grounding in lived experience.
