Unusual documentary
9 October 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

SK Thoth, the star of this doc. comes through a whole pile of pain in his life and through the process learns who he wants to be. He was a shy, fearful child who never smiled after his parents broke up. Racism was rampant in the states and he was a product of a mixed marriage, a Jewish father and an Afro-American mother, both educated intellectuals. Close to suicide he makes a conscious decision to explore his whole being and dare to embrace all of it, including a language and country he invented as a child. The results are enthralling viewing and I particularly enjoyed the reactions of the audience to Thoth's performance in the Tunnel in Central Park. The reaction of the brokers on Wall Street was a different matter! 7 out of 10. I would have been interested to hear his sisters' reaction to his strange life-style and there wasn't quite enough about the partner who lived in a different city.
