Justice and Corruption and Profit are abstractions, and film is so ill suited to deal with abstractions.
A good documentary leaves the viewer wanting more. A problematic one leaves the viewer needing more.
[Director] Hamilton captures the heart-wrenching devastation done in the name of profit, as citizens mourn. Incredibly effecting.
The Garden is an especially fatuous documentary, nominated for an Oscar this year, about a community garden in South Central LA where Latino farmers have been allowed to grow food on somebody else's land.
This intricate and compelling documentary paints a saddening portrait of American politics.
Scott Hamilton Kennedy's plucky, powerful storytelling makes this a worthwhile experience.
It's easy to tell what side the filmmaker takes, which leads to unanswered questions... [Director Scott Hamilton] Kennedy's compelling documentary is quite thorough otherwise.
If ever there was a micro/macro analogy for the mess we're in with this beaten down old planet, Scott Hamilton Kennedy's film about the farm in South Central L.A. is as good as it gets.
an interesting film simply for the complexity of this issue
The Garden moves beyond the feel good facet of any apparent ending to show how stark, stupid reality can rip said victory away. It won't make sense - none of these 'us vs. them' situations ever do - but it does create compelling cinema.
Likely to grab your heart and incite your passions.
[Director Kennedy] lets his subjects tell their tales in their own words. And that's what really makes the film interesting.
