Sam Klemke's Time Machine
Truly a unique film, director Matthew Bate (Shut Up, Little Man!) returns with another documentary hybrid utilizing decades-old footage. This one perhaps best classified as a documentary companion to Richard Linklater's Boyhood, it begins in 1977 when Sam Klemke began obsessively videotaping himself, creating a visual record of his life. That same year, the Voyager 1 spacecraft was launched, containing the Golden Records, a so-called history of life on Earth to be discovered by alien beings. Bate skillfully weaves the two together, showing that when it comes to the raw, messy life of a human exemplified by Klemke and the life he has lived on camera - the Golden Record perhaps was not as complete as it should have been. Poignant, funny and at times melancholy, the film is - like life itself - a roller coaster of emotions.
