Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Tom Wiener
The appearance of the sixth installment of Michael Apted's brilliantly conceived and executed series of films tracing the lives and fortunes of a diverse group of Britishers coincided with the rise of what is now called "reality television." On shows like Survivor and Fear Factor, viewers are allowed glimpses into how so-called ordinary people will behave in extreme situations. The Up series is the antithesis of this trumped-up scenario; it allows life to go on unrecorded, save for a drop-in by Apted and his crew every seven years. The scenes of domestic life -- the husband and wife playing with the kids in the garden or walking through the streets on a shopping trip -- are the film's least interesting moments because, like the reality shows, they're manufactured. It's when the subjects become talking heads and have to play catch-up on their lives and reflect on the previous seven years that this series trumps the reality shows. There is little extreme behavior recorded here; the worst-off person, Neil, is, by the time this installment was filmed, on the rebound from years of homelessness and debilitating mental problems. But it is the unexpected turn of events -- a woman who once claimed she wouldn't want any children and is now a loving mum -- or the obstacles that people overcome -- another woman raising three energetic boys on her own, despite debilitating arthritis -- that grab and hold your attention. No cheap thrills here, just an honest and heartfelt examination of the vicissitudes of life.

    One of the best ever.

    Roger Ebert says this is one of the 10 best films of all time. It's so powerful it's hard to watch at times.
