Critic Reviews for That Summer
"That Summer" leaves me with Beale fatigue. It would seem to appeal to "Grey Gardens" completists only.
At just 80 minutes, That Summer is probably one for enthusiasts only, but existing fans will find plenty to savour.
Its value lies less in its resurrection of footage long thought vanished than in the way that it has been co-opted, with remarkably little overt editorial interference, into an essay on the impermanence, persistence and importance of memory.
Olsson's approach to the footage mirrors that of the compulsive-hoarder subjects: keep everything, discard nothing. There's some treasure in there somewhere.
Essential for Grey Gardens completists, but equally very niche.
