Flashback Directed by Herz Frank

What are people saying?

  • Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Flashback

    Aged documentary filmmaker who reckons he doesn't have much longer says "I'm tired of filming other people's lives," so makes an impressionistic cine-autobiography with clips from his old films, still photos of his dying wife, and a scene of his own open-heart surgery that he doesn't expect to survive. A mediation on death from a man whose films are often about death: a valuable film about an interesting character.
