The Sweetest Sound
Way too bothered by the fact that other people out there share his name, documentarian Alan Berliner gathers 12 fellow Alan (and Allen and Alain) Berliners to have dinner and talk about, well, being Alan Berliner. While building toward this less-than-momentous event, Berliner whimsically ponders some provocative notions about how names help define identities and shape personalities. Too bad he keeps leaving these thoughts unfinished in his haste to return to the subject of himself. Sorry, Alan Berliner, but you’re not as interesting as all that.
