The Sweetest Sound

I enjoyed this piece a great deal. I liked how creative he was in making his point about a name. He used all sorts of visuals and audio cues to play with his audience. I liked his narrations as well. They were relaxed and fun to listen too. I think I got a little lost with the whole idea of the film, was it that he liked his name or that he thought it funny that a name is how we represent everything about us. I don’t know I think I would have to watch it again.

I don’t know that a film like this serves much of a purpose rather than to just entertain. That’s okay. I think I would really like to see a film that he makes perhaps about a serious issue in the world. I think that that film would be incredible but this works for me.

I liked how he used random bits of archival footage he had and even explains he doesn’t know what the story for most of the footage is. I guess I just liked his unconventional methods of storytelling. Just how he uses his visuals to capture our attention and make us think. I think is Dad is great too.
