Casey Neistat is a prodigiously talented film maker. His YouTube channel is testimony to his skill in allowing the everyday and the commonplace to speak. There’s an undoubted truth in his work. His relaxed visuals and humorous approach belie an almost obsessive attention to the details, the patina, and the texture of life.
His latest offering resonated with me on so many levels. Not long ago I wrote a short piece about why I run. Neistat’s film energetically explores a similar question and it’s wonderful.
