I think I would have preferred if Dying at Grace had been thirty minutes or so shorter as almost two and a half hours is a very long time to experience such a heavy drama--though I do think the film is extraordinary and of great value. The last film, Memory for Max, Claire, Ida and Company was for me the best of all. Just a wonderful film. The others I'm afraid I was not so fond of and fast forwarded in places because I found them tedious. Still, the ones on dying and memory loss were unlike anything I've ever seen and will remain with me for a long long time.
