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.


‘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
