The Windmill Movie
Drama
As conceived and edited together by Alexander Olch, this documentary pays homage to the life of the late filmmaker and professor Richard P. Dick Rogers (Pictures from a Revolution). Director of the Harvard University Film Study Center, Rogers died in July 2001. He left behind boxes upon boxes of footage intended for an unrealized autobiographical film; working together with Rogers's wife and creative partner, Susan Meiselas (who assumed the role of producer here), Olch began assembling the footage in its intended form. The resultant work sits poised halfway between fiction and documentary; it employs a linear chronology that spans Rogers's life, from his youth to his premature passing from melanoma at the age of 57. Olch uses the loosely-knit footage to meditate, pensively, on the nature of film, art, and the cycle of life, as well as Rogers's need to create for the sake of progeny.~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide Rated No Rating .
