Review: 'First Cousin Once Removed' a moving look at Alzheimer's
Heartbreaking, haunting and unexpectedly heartening, "First Cousin Once Removed" is an uncommonly moving documentary portrait of a mind in disarray. Its unblinking look at a once-formidable intelligence descending into the abyss of Alzheimer's succeeds because of a fusion of subject and filmmaker that is transcendent.
