when i think of lifts i always think of awkwardness and the sentence by ernest sabato that the special kind of loneliness is the one where you´re alone in the lift with the mirror. this lift is different. would you like to eat something?
A brilliant development of narrative, with brilliant insight into the documentary process and how people will get used to a camera eventually, and how some people will always put on a performance. A enjoyable piece of work that captures and explores the subject brilliantly
hilarious but heartbreaking and heartwarming. he's kind of an asshole with the questions he asks (you would have to see) but in a way that makes sense for the documentary format and for getting the answers he wants from the people in this apartment building. he sat in this elevator for HOURS but it was worth it. very enjoyable and something i could watch more than once even if i'm not getting specific information.
