Critics reviews

[It's] a radical instance of cinéma vérité. Formally, it is not a great Mekas movie. It doesn't have the beauty, eloquence, and coherence of Walden (1966) or Out-Takes from the Life of a Happy Man (2012), although it pulls together a penultimate and a final scene to make you weep and laugh and weep again over the irony that this puny digital artifact most likely will outlive everyone depicted in it, and has already outlived the architect who is its subject, Raimund Abraham.
