Setting the record straight

Me (your brother)--is he my brother?--corrects the record; I thought the Harvey Keitel character in Smoke took a picture at the same spot every day for 1 year. Actually, it was 11 years:
One of the most fascinating moments of Smoke occurs when Auggie talks about a project that has consumed him for the last eleven years: every morning at the same hour, he goes across the street from his shop and takes a single picture with his 35 mm camera. Over time, he has accumulated more than 4000 photographs, each of which tells a story.
