The saga of Ross McElwee, filmmaker, continues with this almost-sequel to Sherman's March. The expat Southerner has finally managed to find a kindred soul to marry (another filmmaker, Marilyn Levene) and things seem to be going swimmingly. Then the couple are hit with a rapid-fire series of family tragedies that send McElwee into deep contemplation. Time Indefinite is a bittersweet journey, however, full of the self-deprecating humor and observational skill that made Sherman's March such a treat. The title is a phrase from the Bible, read aloud as part of a diatribe by a Jehovah's Witness at the door, which strikes Ross as particularly lovely. The third film of this (so far) trilogy is Six O'Clock News. ~ John Voorhees, All Movie Guide

something like documentary
personal, experimental, and beautiful films that (i think) smartly challenge the conventions of documentary
