4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating! Jan. 13 2010
By Jelly Jar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This little gem isn't so much a documentary as much as it is a story. It's rather typical in its portrayal of a family dealing with depression, adultery, and separation, but what draws it all together into one big mound of coolness is the creativity involved in Isaiah's (The Father) work as an artist, particularly focusing on mosaic design. I believe the movie said the family resided in Philadelphia, and Isaiah's entire focus is beautifying life in and around the city by putting himself and his loved ones into his work. That coupled with the slow deterioration of his immediate family make for an interesting, if somewhat involved, piece of film making. Typically, most documentaries bore me to yawns and tears, except for those based in the genre of science, but as much as I wanted to turn this off, I couldn't help but stay glued to it, for all the wonder and color of Isaiah's work, for all the strength and stability of his wife, Julia, for the innocence and caring demeanor of Zeke, the brother who isn't filming the movie, and for Jeremiah, the brother who is filming the movie, and his attention to detail in describing, not only with interviews, but with highly visual aspects, the nature of the world in which he grew up. This one gets four stars from me! **** Highly enjoyable!

Great movie about an interesting family. Makes me want to visit Philly to check out Isaiah's art. I enjoyed the beautiful animated sequences of photographs and illustrations, as well as moving shots through Isaiah's buildings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complicated Lives Looked at Through Glass July 28 2012
By Elaine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this documentary. I buy very few discs and I waited a long time to purchase this because of the expense, but finally I was concerned it might go out of print and disappear. It is a documentary filmed by a son, in an attempt to better understand, and perhaps even forge a closer relationship with his father. His father is an eccentric, perhaps mentally ill artist who works in mosaics, in the most extreme fashion, and has been emotionally, if not physically absent for much of family life. Is a beautiful, emotional and disturbing family journey, as well as a glimpse into the mind and art of a very unique man. Truly unique.

Five stars for this film. The DVD is focused not only on the artist but his family. It is a documentary of his works and how his family and outside life come into his creation. Amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars For anyone who has ever deeply loved another Sept. 16 2009
By M. George - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This documentary is so very very good , I hope it gets nominated for an Academy Award , it is about passion and a couple with a real deep HEARTISTIC connection to each other , never mind the artistic . That their son made this movie was so very cool and that both sons stepped up to help the parents realign with each other goes so against what we are all taught in our culture today. BRAVO, BRAVO .BRAVO!
