Rate this:
When documentarian Ed Pincus, considered the father of first-person non-fiction film, is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and collaborator Lucia Small team up to make one last film - much to the chagrin of Jane, Ed's wife of 50 years. This New York Film Festival selection is told from both filmmakers' points of view. Ed and Lucia's unique approach to filming offers an intimacy rarely seen in documentaries, questioning whether some things might be too private to be made public. An intense, raw, yet sometimes humorous exploration of the human condition, One Cut, One Life invites viewers to contemplate for themselves what is important, not only at the end of life, but also during.

Subtitles were an okay size, white with no background
Lots going on but doesnt have much of a purpose, other than to document the last few years of Ed's life. Kinda bored me after 45minutes, still watched all of it & the interview with Ed's best friend, Lucia.
