Critic Reviews for Garnet's Gold
Approaching the story for the traditional trappings - narrative, action, even logic - is to ensure disappointment. But look to it for beauty and lyricism, and you may find a deeper satisfaction.
The movie meanders (Perkins seems as distractingly lost as Frost), but it can stir real sympathy.
Sometimes all a documentary needs is one strong, charismatic personality to keep things watchable: Garnet's Gold boasts two in the form of the middle-aged eponymous protagonist and his feisty octogenarian mother.
A cinematically impressive documentary about a treasure-hunting oddball who is regrettably not fascinating enough to justify 90 minutes of film time.
There's a suspicion that Perkins' beautiful and expressionistic camera work...is masking the possibility that his subject is really just a bit of a windbag. Still, the tension between these two dynamics proves oddly compelling.
