Critics reviews

Rappaport goes further most of today’s video essayists, who often settle on just using found footage. He actually has an actor play Rock Hudson, addressing the audience as if speaking from the afterlife, just a few years after Hudson had died of AIDS. This takes appropriation to a whole new level.
