Losing Myself: Stewart

Losing Myself: Stewart


Reviewed by: Scott Macdonald

What an interesting (very) short film! It explores the world of an aging artist suffering from dementia and how his mind, while decaying is still driven to continually create.

It consists of a taped interview in which he discusses his difficulties with people. Into this, is spliced home movies of the artist as he tries to deal with people and his ongoing instincts - and how his instincts continue to drive him as his mind betrays his body.

It's an inspiring, effective and wonderfully evocative experience.
