truisms regarding Bill Eggleston's In the Real World
I could not disagree more w/some of the above criticism. Firstly; William Eggleston is GENIUS ABSOLUTE !! He is arguably the Father of Color still's in America. Nonetheless; his vision inspired generations of many artists to redefine how & what we see//Brilliant// Now; the aesthetics of the film were indeed lo-fi !! Their was grain and abrupt camera moving however I felt that the film wasn't trying too be anything other than what it is//HONEST// Eggleston states; "I'm at war with the obvious!!" In the film he walks into a drugstore w/his son both warmly embracing their cameras. Almost immediately are they asked to leave. Mr.Eggleston in a reply to the employee explains with certainty that they are both photographers & this is what fotographers do. The most obvious fact is that the photographer is always authentically himself. He can't help but be REAL/he simply is
Furthermore; their are no facades // it's as if he's like WATER//The film is good at capturing his fluid approach to a long & very successful career. This cinematic treasure is a must see for every eggleston enthusiast World Wide !!
