The Perfect Movie to Come Out This Year (Along with Control Room and Fahrenheit 911)
This year has been full of topical documentaries. Control Room did a great job of presenting us with a look at how biased our news media is. Fahrenheit 911 is sure to show us plenty of negative images of Bush. The next most important documentary is Tying the Knot.
I had the chance to see this at the 2004 TriBeCa Film Fest. The theater was packed and the audience was pumped. I had very little expectations for this film, but was thrilled to witness a movie that does more than present information... it presents personal perspectives.
Tying the Knot offers multiple perspectives as to why same-sex marriages should be legal. One of the most fascinating parts is a brief history that is given on the topic of marriage and how it has developed over centuries.
I just hope that people (although it's not terribly realistic) who don't agree with same- sex marriages will go and see it.
