Mark Cousins was the force behind a series of documentaries that were
recently aired on TCM, The Story of Film an Odyssey, something on the
order of 15 hours that looks through film as a worldwide journey. There
was something with that that could at times bother me, but it still
could also be fairly interesting even if it had its lulls.
However, in this, I feel more like Cousins is somewhere between
laziness and simply inelegant. The framework he uses to set this
exploration is, in my view, tenuous at best as he starts off with
filming his niece and nephew, then attempts to use this video to
highlight all the aspects that film depicts of children. The concept
may sound quite original, but the way he pulls things out of that
initial video is forced, at best, and while it's an attempt to create
an overarching theme, it just doesn't hold up. The way he ties film
into this initial video also seems to use the most tenuous of threads,
including very forced links and strong attempts to create parallel
situations that often are not present. While some of this is the same
style that I saw in The Story of Film, it seems to really go to new
heights here, milking such things as movies with balloons in them.
The point where it seems to really go beyond any reasonable credulity
is when he begins using footage he had of a dog to remind him of the
things about childhood that WEREN'T in the video of his niece and
nephew, and when ha manages to use their grandmother stepping in shot
but with her head above the frame as some way to create a series of
links starting with Tom and Jerry, notable for its distinct lack of any
kids in it. It also violated his initial statement that he was only
going to focus on live-action.
What I've seen of him in the past was far exceeded here in terms of
attempts to force symbolism and connections in increasingly convoluted
ways. Additionally, without the historical element to provide a common
theme, the film really gets lost in itself at points, and it spends far
more time trying to be profound that in does really discussing those
themes in a more substantive and cohesive way.
