First Person

Show Summary

Errol Morris is an Oscar-winning film director. The creator of groundbreaking documentaries like The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of War, he's turned his patented "Interrotron" on many a subject, getting them to explain their life and their philosophy for the camera.

Now, in First Person, he combines Megatron interviews and stock footage to create a 24-minute profile of characters both fascinating and bizarre. Objectivity has been thrown wholesale right out the window. You're out there alone, utterly alone. All we can do is urge you to watch and wish you good luck.

  • Brilliance. Absolute brilliance.

    Brilliance. Absolute brilliance. I haven't seen such performances on tv since the time... I can't even envision a time when I had so much fun watching this show. Highly recommended!!!I love the movie based on the music, story, direction.All these three are very good.I love love this movie very much.

  • The two seasons of 'First Person' are documentary gems from Errol Morris, who is a master of the genre.

    Each and every episode in this two season series pulls you into the world of people with unique life experiences, and often, odd obsessions. He employs his distinctive interviewing technique, The Interrotron (a device much like a teleprompter which broadcasts Morris' face) to produce a very sincere connection between interviewee and audience.

    My favorite episode is "Leaving the Earth", the story of how Denny Fitch bucked the odds and not only survived a plane crash--he helped land the plane! A truly remarkable story well paced, and very well shot.

    No episode in this 17 part series should be overlooked.
