very good
9 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very enjoyable. Although, I admit, I like the slow ones. This movie's does start slow, but it lays a firm foundation for what is to come. The second half picks up pace quite a bit. Some great plot development for a documentary. The storyline has some twists. The ending and the way it ties in with the earlier comments is genius. And the change of format supports it well.

While some might see the set up and scenes as cliché', classic symbolism is appropriate for the archetypal subject matter. And the story and personalities are unique. It rings true to me.

Exquisite editing with a few tasteful additions. The video frame turns into a picture turns into a map of where they're going is truly fantastic. Really beautiful. Great Job.
