What a family. I was reminded of a couple other documentaries; Grey Gardens (1976) and The Beales of Grey Gardens (2006). As with the GG series, it starts, follows the action, and extends beyond the end of filming – making discoveries along the way that could not have been imagined. As with Zeigoff’s Ghost World (2001), you’ve got 78 rpm music, and in at least one scene you see TZ’s collection in the background in a staged setup. Do watch it again with Roger Ebert and TZ’s commentary.
I remember reading R. Crumb comics in the hippie shops that sprung up on the street I walked to school every morning in the late 60s and 70s.
