I will say I feel a bit uneasy about how this movie has received so much negative feedback. But what I can say is that I am thankful for all the positive reviews that this documentary has received. I think it's simply because everyone's opinions are more or less the same. I think that this film is a beautiful tribute to the people that actually make documentaries. It is really difficult to find good documentaries these days and they should be celebrated for what they do. I have had my share of documentaries, I even have a passion for them, so I hope that this film does well because I feel it has the potential to bring the audience in the same way as I do. It is a reflection of the way I wish to live my life, the way I want to be. It's really a beautiful film about how documentaries are made, and it's beautiful to see a group of professionals doing it in a way that is truly authentic to the way they make documentaries. I think it's just great that this film is reaching the audience because it will probably do the best to connect with people who are not necessarily movie fans, because there are a lot of people who would like to see a different side to documentaries, but are afraid of changing. I think that this documentary is really worthy of this level of criticism. It is a great documentary because it is about so many different aspects of documentary making, so many different aspects that are different from one another, but it is also about a documentary as a human being. It's about the human part of a documentary and it's about the human part of a documentary that makes it special and really special. I think it really is an honor to be a part of this documentary.

Seeing Albert on a plane at one of the busiest airports in the country was a welcome sight. The rolling idling hum of jet engines, the hum of drivers in the city, the swooshing of air passengers. A total view of nothing but a soulless machine of human suffering. It was inhumane, but I remember nothing about it. Today that flight manifests in the news. I can't think of any other plane in the world that leaves its passengers dispirited, appalled, and sickened. But the idea of a human being contemplating suicide by hanging from the ceiling (or a window) has the same power to enlighten. The films principal characters, Danny and his son Jordan, had not much to say on camera, and only through their eyes (which are shown) were we able to see the pain that they and the rest of the passengers felt, even as they made their flight. We will never know what they were thinking, or what they would have done to improve the condition of their fellow passengers. They were not bad people, they were simply different. The music by the late, great Mark Rydell, the lighting by Kyle Feldman, the makeup and special effects by Joe R. Pusateri, and the editing by Tim Connelly, to name a few, were all stunning. In all, this was a very well made film. The only thing that will keep it from receiving an Oscar is that it has been screened twice. Sadly, however, that will be a different kind of film experience. And when it does, I'm sure the world will remember the hunger that it brought us all.
