First Cousin Once Removed

2012 ▪ Culture & Society ▪ 78 Minutes

Directed by Alan Berliner. Starring Alan Berliner, and Edwin Honig.

What "once removes" film diarist-documentarian Alan Berliner from his close friend and elder cousin, noted professor/poet/translator Edwin Honig, is Alzheimer's. Early in the pic, Honig's sister questions Berliner's motives, wondering whether it's ethical to constantly confront an Alzheimer's patient with his own memory loss simply to make a movie. The result, however, is a fascinatingly fractured glimpse into a disengaged mind and a biopic-in-reverse of its subject, quite unlike any documentary seen before.
