A Man Vanishes

Is this my life? Is this my wife? Letting the days go by, water flowing underground.

So he starts off all mild-mannered, then it turns out he’s being stealing company funds and carrying on an affair. Then more drama. Blurring the line between doc and narrative only reveals that in all way, the world is how you perceive it.I like to say “normal stay” instead of Namaste, but this is a very stupid household joke.I digress – an incredible film of the new wave era, a true insight into humanity and cultural specificities and ways of handling the bullshit we all deal with.
