Documentary with pretty good subject matter
18 January 2001 | by (Gainesville, FL) – See all my reviews

This documentary starts out with people walking around saying things like, "Oh noooo. Oh my Godddd. Here's another body." and, "Look at the blood all over." Their voice intonations were appropriately whiny, but it was all very casual. From here the documentary plunges into footage of Dika, a 75 year old night club singer, who tends to do off key versions of Elvis songs, and who used to be a university professor. The subject material is interesting. Interspersed with the footage of singing are the usual interviews and such. Some of the people interviewed wore somewhat odd clothing. I don't recommend seeing this film. It is an interesting subject, but the singing - good lord.
