Tawdriness aside, The Backyard is remarkable for the intensity of the interviewees, who show a new kind of all-American gumption in the way they filter the mannerisms of low-rung celebrities through their own geeked-out, violent imaginations.
Those who've wondered whether TV's WWF show wrestling might have a detrimental effect on impressionable youth will gloat over The Backyard.
Warped entertainment? Yes. Sophisticated? No. And that goes for the movie as well as for the participants.
Yes, it's hard to watch, but, like a train wreck, it's also hard not to.
What is going on here? Most would say a lot of incredibly dangerous and stupid activity, and most of the people in this documentary not surprisingly seem none too bright.
Though engaging from beginning to end, be warned that this is also harrowing, utterly depressing stuff.
It's unflinchingly honest (and unlike hysterical media reports on the phenomenon, balanced)
Get reeeeeady to wince.
Chances are you'll probably watch most of this documentary with both hands over your eyes, but if your curious about just what kind of insanity the kids in the heartland are getting up to these days, you won't want to miss it.
Eventually you realize the whole movie has been about young showoffs who think it's uproarious to gross out neighborhood grownups.
Fascinating -- everything Beyond the Mat wasn't.
The Backyard is a very hard doc to watch, but it's as gruesomely riveting as a train wreck.
