Movie Info

This not-quite-documentary takes place far away and out of sight, on the margins and off the grid of American society. It tells the stories of April, Dave, Cindy, Rick, and a man who calls himself "the Godfather." From a couple scraping by in the depths of the flood channels located beneath Sin City, to a man living in a reclaimed military bunker in the middle of the dusty California desert, and beyond even the stratosphere, to a place where Mars and Earth have become one and the same place, this motley crew of individuals have been flung into periling circumstances on this rollercoaster ride called life. Through the hustle, pain, and laughter, we are whisked away to an unfamiliar world whose inhabitants are revealed to be souls not unlike our very own.

The part of this documentary that makes it honest and refreshing is the concession that society, with all its strict rules and warped ideologies and environmental desecration, isn't really what these characters are running from.

Less than impressive film.

...Above and Below is a work of slick artistry but at the cost of something truly transcendent.
