Critic Reviews for Keep the River on Your Right
The Shapiros ... ultimately reveal a frail but mentally robust old man whose gnawing hunger for knowledge led him to shun a safe, comfortable career in art for a series of radically transformative experiences at the world's edges.
A fascinating if somewhat unfocused documentary.
Schneebaum, a dull and helpless-looking nonentity at first glance, proves to be an amazingly courageous, inquisitive, remarkable man.
There's no denying the warmth of Schneebaum's encounters, or his engaging nature. Or the fact that you've never seen a documentary quite like this one, and aren't likely to again.
Makes for fascinating, compelling viewing.
Audience Reviews for Keep the River on Your Right
Tobias Schneebaum certainly engaged in some interesting research on indigenous tribes and their views on homosexuality and marriage but this film was centred on his return to the areas of his initial study..which makes it slightly dull. Perhaps the focus could have been placed on the research rather than a nostalgic trip.
the narrative flow of this film is kind of jumbled and distracting and the score is awful. also, the marketing materials for this film are kind of misleading (if you're hoping to see a movie about a guy who at any time enjoyed feasting on human flesh you'll definitely be disappointed). however, the movie does succeed in conveying the personality of it's fascinating subject, now-deceased nyc artist/anthropologist, tobias schneebaum. i plan to read up more on this guy.
This documentary has it?s interesting moments, but it suffers from a weird main person they are focusing on, plus, it?s not that he isn?t a nice person, I just didn?t fine him that likable, so therefore I did not become as engrossed as I should have.
