JOAN DIDION: THE CENTER WILL NOT HOLD (Theatrical Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold
plays for an adult audience as it examines the life of Joan Didion. The documentary introduces and establishes interviews with superb technique. The camera work is some of the best in the business. The viewer can walk away from the film with appreciation for Didion’s ability to make sense from cultural diversity, see beyond the normal scope of viewing, and be true to her life's purpose as she sees it.
