How to Live with Regret
All Films • 23-May-2018
The new satirical video tutorial from filmmaker John Wilson explores the world of regrets, both big and small. A bad haircut or a broken phone may not seem like a huge deal but it may cause "cascading effects that lead to long-term regret." With his signature halting voice-over, Wilson weaves in hilarious connections between shakycam footage of crazy sights around NYC and his "life advice." Over a mysteriously smoking Big Bird head lying on the sidewalk, he warns against, "thinking about all the other ways your life could be." Later, a priceless appearance from renowned filmmaker, Caveh Zahedi (who has kept a journal of his regrets for the past twenty years) suggests that all of reality is an illusion, and who's to disagree? The latest in Wilson’s illustrious “How-To” series (explaining everything from “How to Live with Bedbugs”, “How to Clean a Cast Iron Pan”, and “How to Act on Reality TV”), it ranks up there with the best.
