Life in a Day (2011)

Director: Kevin MacDonald. 95 min. Rated PG-13. Documentary

Ninety minutes out of 4,500 hours of video shot by people from 192 countries, answering a few simple questions, on July 24th, 2010. Werner Herzog has said our world is starving for images, and there's rarely a film in recent memory from which so many images were etched in my mind. Produced by Ridley and Tony Scott, take this as a sign of similarities between people, or as a sign of their differences around the world; but this short journey demonstrates how unbelievably interesting simple everyday life can be. Consider yourself a loser if you miss this film.

PS: This film, produced by YouTube, was appropriately the first time I watched a feature film on the website. You can watch it for free in HD here.
