Filmmakers Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel, over the film's quick 84 minutes, find some humanity and pathos in the story, which eventually takes an unexpectedly heartwarming turn.

What starts out as a freak show ends up a poignant tale of tragedy, redemption, and the boon of taxidermy.

Finders Keepers sees the tragedy in Whisnant's egomania. As he agrees to a tacky reality show, we realize he's peddling something more valuable than a leg - he's selling his soul.

What starts out alternately comic and catastrophic ends in unforeseen poignancy in "Finders Keepers," a documentary that proves that truth is stranger than fiction. Way stranger.

Audience Reviews for Finders Keepers

A strange tale about two individuals from the fringes of society who debate ownership over a severed leg. The two are so unbelievable that they just breathe life into one of the strangest documentaries that I have come across.
