Movie Info

PUPPET follows Dan Hurlin, a downtown artist who is creating a puppet theater piece based on the life of Mike Disfarmer, a Depression-era portrait photographer. Hurlin's struggle to mount the show has an eerie parallel to his subject, whose stunning body of work was very nearly lost forever. --© Official Site

Fortunately, Puppet has the right stuff even as it proceeds, checklist-fashion, through virtually every convention of the idiom.

A documentary that made the festival rounds last year.

The docu's work-in-progress glimpses possess a compelling strangeness as deep emotion is painstakingly deconstructed into tiny, manipulated movements.

If you've been itching for a good warts-and-all theatre documentary, check out David Soll's Puppet. Yes, the star is a tiny little creature made of chicken wire and papier-mâché, but it still counts.

The best part of Puppet is the light it shines on a darkly-lit stage, the preparation, the smoothness of movement, the choreography.

We need films like Puppet and artists like Hurlin to remind us that puppeteering is a magical act that can reflect honestly upon the human condition.
