'Up'

Director Michael Apted's seven-part, generation-spanning documentary series "Up," which follows the lives of 14 British children from 1964 to 2012, is now available to stream on Netflix Instant. Select clips and a Roger Ebert interview with Apted below.

With one episode every seven years, this universally lauded series originally made for British television joins the ranks of Kieslowski's "Three Colors" series, Ozu's "Noriko" set and Linklater's "Before" films as a cinematic time lapse experiment for the ages. Apted chose kids from varying socioeconomic backgrounds to see how their class might predetermine their future. The films follow them from ages seven to 56.

In his Great Movies review of the anthology, Roger Ebert described "Up" as an "inspired, even noble use of the film medium... To look at these films, as I have every seven years, is to meditate on the astonishing fact that man is the only animal that knows it lives in time."
