Yes, Kirsten Johnson is a pretty good cinematographer. No, she doesn't know what to do about it.

A way to use leftover snippets from previous work? Not interesting.

My honest take on this documentary is that it is very odd but strangely compelling. At first, I thought these were random snippets of film and they are--but then they gradually seem to connect, showing a picture of the person behind the camera that is rarely seen. I don't think many people will like this film, but I thought it was at least interesting.
