Zoe Bell: So you're an actor?
Terry Frick (Photographer): Yeah, but I'm about to quit. I think I'm going to quit.
Zoe Bell: Oh yeah? Why's that?
Terry Frick (Photographer): I can't, I've been living in London as well, I can't breathe, everybody knows me there, and I hate it.

Loved This Film

DOUBLE DARE chronicles the ultimately intersecting lives of two stunt women, a graceful, aging veteran and an ingénue-like up and comer. Somehow, in a reasonable chunk of time, the filmmaker tackles the unveiling of two distinct personalities and histories. She then recontextualizes them within the two distinct eras that produced them.

The older one faced challenges as a woman in a male dominated field that the younger one will probably never encounter. Yet neither the characters nor the filmmaker take the "Look at the injustice" route on this issue. The piece ends up being a solid character study with the gender politics circling cheerfully on the perimeter. The characters are aggressively likeable, and the filmmaker reveals a world that audiences rarely if ever get to see. Documentary is 90% editing, and lucky for us, because the editing is phenomenal. I can't wait to see what this filmmaker chooses to tackle next. Excellent work.
