This is a tender, patient, and beautifully slow exploration of one man - Mr Vig - and his mind. We're gradually shown glimpses of character, little hints of what is happening beneath Vig's extensive collection of hats. In the process the film touches upon profoundly human issues, like loneliness, old age and, our deep, almost subconscious, longing for social contact. Documentary work at its very best.
