William Eggleston in the Real World

Someone asked for more videos that show the Photographer in action. This is one of my favorites. Like the man himself, the film comes at the biography of an illusive man at the weird angle of just following him around with very little exposition. There are breaks that show his work and some up historical points in his career. I couldn't decide if the film was even functional as a biography -- tuned in from a strange place, like a David Lynch piece if it attempted realism while keeping one foot in the strange Lynchian alterverse. As a film, I watched it over and over. I understood very little about what made the man tick after watching the film, but I learned a great deal about being quietly driven to do something in a way that can't be easily explained in words.
