How best to cover the life and times of one of Britain’s foremost poetic thinkers, John Berger, on film? Give him the linear This Is Your Life treatment, with fawning endorsements from friends and family? Stick to a single, salient episode and go into minute detail? Or maybe opt for something a little more kooky and conceptual? The Seasons in Quincy goes for a little bit of all three routes, offering more remedial material for Berger newbies and a some deep-dive stuff for the superfans.
