This is a documentary about birdwatching, so it's a little boring. Nevertheless! It's the most interesting bird documentary you'll see this year. It goes like this: Dude thinks he spots the extinct Ivory-Billed Woodpecker in rural Alabama. Bird watchers flock (PUN!) to AL to catch a glimpse. Dude has likely mistaken the extinct bird for your standard woodpecker. Hijinks ensue!
Involving the economic future of a small town, massive federal funding, and sexy ornithologists.
Interesting segments but no narrative arc. It's worth seeing, but it would have been better as an episodic series rather than a feature.
This cat from Maryland spends EIGHT years on one drawing of Marilyn Monroe. Eight! Once complete, he sets out to show the piece to artist David Hockney, who, the artist believes, will recognize his genius and make him famous. The film is about art, obsession and determination, with wonderfully stranger than fiction characters. Full Review on Fell Witness: http://bit.ly/j3Vkpu
Beautifully shot in black and white, very interesting story about dealings with the record label, but the first really interesting thing happens at minute 40. It's too long.
Say you're a single / bored / lonely Japanese lady. You hire a "host boy" for an evening. He serves as your sexless prostitute while you hang out in his club. He sells to you only his time and dazzling conversational skills. What a great plan, everything is working great!
Riiiiight. The host boys are wonderful characters, but the lady-patrons steal the show. Midway through, and surprisingly, the film changes gears from foreign little Japanese oddity to a very very interesting social commentary. This one is a gem.
