Though director Earnhart has yet to find the ironic distance, sharp interviewing techniques or creative editing of documentarians like Chris Smith ... and Errol Morris ... Mule Skinner Blues suggests he is on the right track.
As amusing as it often is, it is even more affectionate.
The charms of willful eccentricity, at least as evidenced by this latest cinematic essay, are beginning to wear a bit thin.
Watching Beanie and his gang put together his slasher video from spare parts and borrowed materials is as much fun as it must have been for them to make it.
Boisterous and daft documentary.
It might be tempting to regard Mr. Andrew and his collaborators as oddballs, but Mr. Earnhart's quizzical, charming movie allows us to see them, finally, as artists.
Beanie's a big believer in appreciating the art in your own neighborhood even if it isn't backed by a multimillion-dollar budget - and so am I.
It will make you think twice about what might be going on inside each trailer park you drive past -- even if it chiefly inspires you to drive a little faster.
Stephen Earnhart's documentary is a decomposition of healthy eccentric inspiration and ambition - wearing a cloak of unsentimental, straightforward text - when it's really an exercise in gross romanticization of the delusional personality type.
We get some truly unique character studies and a cross-section of Americana that Hollywood couldn't possibly fictionalize and be believed.
Has all the poignancy of a Hallmark card and all the comedy of a Gallagher stand-up act.
A treat for its depiction on not giving up on dreams when you're a struggling nobody.
