I loved Creative Nonfiction, this is the type of film people should look at in terms of production cost. When you're starting out in film you have to do a lot with nothing, and that is exactly what Lena does. You can see the raw talent that Lena possesses with her acting and dialogue. I think what makes the film so effective is that, as the viewer, I felt like I was prying into Ella's life. It's almost like going through someone's phone and digging through all their inner-most personal conversations and pictures. The whole movie was like a diary, and I think people are interested in that. Whenever we overhear a conversation about girls talking about their sex lives, you sort of want to linger around and overhear, because it's interesting. Creative Nonfiction is just that, it's a personal diary of a college woman's life.

The objective, hand-held camera-work works great, still photography would have made the scenes monotonous, and it would have played out within the first 15 minutes. It's an impressive debut by the very young Lena Dunham.
