noble love

Named for one of director-photographer Bruce Weber's beloved golden retrievers, A LETTER TO TRUE is a cinematic essay--in the free-association style of Weber's CHOP SUEY (2001)--documenting his obsessions and concerns in a post-9/11 world with emphasis on the importance of canine companionship. Using a heartfelt, handwritten letter to the dog as a springboard, Weber begins the film with thoughts on his dismay over the terrorist attacks in New York, then transitions into his longtime fascination with actor Dirk Bogarde, who is seen in vintage home movies during the idyllic years he spent in Provence with his manager, Anthony Forwood.
About as exciting as watching someone else's home movies -- albeit, beautifully photographed ones."
