The Biggest "small" movie ever made. That is an understatement. The term "independent film" conjures up images of low-priced film-making, unsteady shots, slackers, "cool" underdogs and story lines as pretentious as the filmmaker looking through the lens. When I think of an "independent film" I don't tend to think of high-class film-making. That is, until now. Never have I seen an independent film as outstanding as Firecracker. It isn't fare to compare Firecracker with other indie flicks. There is simply no comparison. Having seen Wamego: A Documentary, Making Movies Anywhere, I am astounded at the level of expertise summoned to craft this work of genius. The Balderson's seem really down to earth, too. That alone is something rare. Great job, guys!
