Director Josephine Decker Talks Watching Her Life in ‘Flames’

By Kristen Tauer

May 04, 2017

POV MAGAZINE - REVIEW

"Flames illustrates how art and passion both blind us to the very things before our eyes. If the action of Flames consistently resembles drama, there’s still a fascinating element of documentary within the film’s hybridity as it captures the dissolution of a relationship and the ephemeral nature of romance."
