Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time15

Directed by Robert B. Weide, Don Argott | USA | 2021 | 2h 7m | Starring Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Sam Waterston, Morley Safer

A compelling documentary recounting the extraordinary life of renowned American author Kurt Vonnegut. The film spans his childhood years in Indianapolis, his time as a Prisoner of War, and the long years as a struggling writer eventually leading to the publication of his celebrated anti-war novel Slaughterhouse-Five. Directed by award-winning screenwriter Robert Weide (Curb Your Enthusiasm) who wrote a fan letter to Vonnegut at the age of 23, and soon found himself with a lifelong friend.

Reviews

‘Selected readings from novels and short stories are imaginatively visualised, and the final sequences are profoundly moving. Vonnegut would have been proud of the finished film’
★★★★
David Hughes, Time Out

‘It’s this aspect – the real warmth, the way the camera becomes almost incidental in the encounters between documentarian and subject – which gives this film its satisfying emotional depth.’
★★★★
Wendy Ide, The Observer
