306 Hollywood

Part of The 13 best movies out this weekend

Metacritic score: 69

The directors of 306 Hollywood, brother-sister pair Jonathan and Elan Bogarín, wanted to make a “magical realism” documentary that would elevate the everyday into something extraordinary. They chose their grandmother as their subject; before she passed away, they spent about a decade interviewing her on camera, and after her death in 2011, they spent nearly a year on an “archaeological expedition” in her house, probing through her belongings and assembling “portraits” of her and their family history from what they found.

The resulting documentary is not a narrative so much as a cloud of knowing, a catalog of a family that is unexpectedly affecting even though most viewers won’t have any reason to care about this particular fa mily. It’s also a moving tribute to a grandmother and a poignant reflection on memory and time.
