  • A uniquely-executed autobiographical rumination, Richard Green's film is a collage of various and sundry materials including old newsreels, animation, and live action in both color and B & W film. It is also narrated entirely in rhyming couplets, and Green's is the only voice that is heard, intoning the voices of all the characters and providing a running commentary. There is a story here, however, and it is ex-hippie Green's own, recounting his early filmmaking ambitions, and his decision to join the corporate world while he worked on his screenplay. Eventually he went to London to start a successful band, and to Los Angeles to start a not-so-successful club. Among the many dreams that Green chases is also his lost love, whom he dubs only "the one who got away." A mishmash of poetry, drama, and documentary, the film carries a surprisingly strong message couched in the melange of styles and the zig-zagging plotline. The heartfelt and sincere moral to this story is that it is never a mistake to chase your dreams, and if failure ensues it is the less tragic for having tried.
