For many, Peter Anton’s house embodies an end-of-life nightmare: heat and electricity are shut off, floorboards are rotting, and the detritus of a chaotic life is precariously stacked to the ceiling. For the filmmakers, Anton’s home is a treasure trove, not to mention Anton himself, a character worthy of his own reality TV show. By its quietly satisfying ending, Almost There provides human drama, insights into mental illness, aging in America, and the redemptive power of art.
