The New York Times writers featured in the documentary Obit are masters of the craft of writing. Using journalist skills and techniques akin to detective work they give special attention to detail to tell the stories of the lives of people for their obituaries. In this film crafting an obit is like writing a song. Finding the right notes while being true to the subject...with compassion. This is a well structured documentary with some talented, experienced writers. Well done.
