Critic Reviews for Being Ginger
The result feels like a class project (as indeed it began), stretched but not deepened to feature length.
This entertaining and enlightening doc also serves as a highly effective cinematic personal ad.
Sweet, funny and ultimately rather touching, this rudimentary record of Mr. Harris's quest to overcome the romantic barrier of his carrot top walks a wavery line between dating odyssey and meditation on the scars of the schoolyard.
Harris is wistful, funny, and articulate about his romantic neuroses and insecurities, saying of one woman, "I was crazy about her, even though she was cruel to me."
A documentary filmmaker's intent to make a movie about the prejudices red-haired people learn to live with evolves into something entirely different.
Audience Reviews for Being Ginger
It is hard to believe that so many people would hate something so beautiful as red hair (yes, I'm a ginger lover), but it is insufferable to see this guy Scott make it all about himself in this empty, time-wasting "documentary" and whine about his self-confidence for endless 70 minutes.
I found this film fresh, light and genuine - a rare set of qualities for a film of this type. It is the central character's willingness to be so openly vulnerable that makes it so compelling. The films exploratory storytelling also gives it life. I found one aspect of the film fascinating, that is, the way in which people approach/respond a circumstance or event has an enormous impact on their view of themselves and defines their happiness. This is not news and has been exhaustively covered by the self-help talking heads however what's refreshing about this film is that it demonstrates this principle in such a personal and authentic way.
