How do you put a life into 500 words? Ask the staff obituary writers at the New York Times. OBIT is a first-ever glimpse into the daily rituals, joys and existential angst of the Times obit writers, as they chronicle life after death on the front lines of history.

it's all about the life.
It's an intriguing subject for a documentary and shows something of the cultural relevance of writing obituaries. A also appreciate the approach which shows the work in progress but also something of its pitfalls. What I don't like is the nearly permanent, unnecessary underscoring: in fact, the strongest parts are without music or - like the typewriter sequence - with a visual choreography to the music.
