112 Weddings (DVD)
Directed by Doug Block
For the past two decades, acclaimed documentary filmmaker Doug Block (51 Birch Street, The Kids Grow Up) has helped support himself by shooting weddings. Hired for his intimate documentary style, he found himself emotionally bonding with his wedding couples on their big day, only to send off their videos and never see them again. Many years and 112 weddings later, having long wondered what’s become of their marriages, Block begins to track down some of his favorite couples. Juxtaposing rapturous wedding day flashbacks with remarkably candid present-day interviews, 112 Weddings explores timeless themes of love and marital commitment.
DVD Extras Include:
- “Heather & Sam Revisited” – an interview two years later
- Q&A with the director and the wedding couples at the film’s premiere
- Theatrical Trailer
- Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired (SDH)
Brilliantly constructed, compulsively watchable.
One of the most complete and honest views of marriage that any movie has ever put forth.
The film is hilarious – the sort of black romantic comedy about unavoidable heartache, ruined opportunities and shattered expectations that leaves you joyfully skipping out of the cinema.
Simple in execution, but unmistakably rich in dialogue of the complexities of married life, Doug Block has lensed a wonderfully playful, startlingly tragic film that will surely move anyone who’s ever been in love and question anyone considering marriage themselves.
112 Weddings is such a good idea for a documentary that I'm stunned it hasn't been done many, many times before.
You have to hand it to Doug Block. With 112 Weddings he has completed one of the loosest yet most compelling doc trilogies in recent memory.
