Good, 14 August 2008
Author: Grann-Bach ( from Denmark

This is a documentary regarding the infamous "Manos". It does a fine job of both telling the viewer what it is, in case they haven't seen it(I have the feeling it's something you don't forget once you have, though I suppose it's a little early for me to say), and examining why it was and got to be the way it was. I'm not sure I'd claim that this left me with a lot of answers, but the process wasn't bad, and it never lost my interest. It's nicely paced, moves at basically the speed it should. This consists of clips of the flick itself, it even holds a brief spoof of it(some of which relate to the subject or such, and all of them aiding in informing those in doubt of the sheer awfulness of the quality of it) and a few interviews, including one with the person that worked on the piece that they could find, and another with what appears to be a historian on it, both of whom are well worth listening to, and have good things to say. Bernie's got a mouth on him, though, which is really the only language in this, but in spite of the amount being fairly low, it gets pretty rough(apart from strong words, there are a few detailing... male anatomy). He reveals a great many things about the production as well as the crew and cast. This also has footage of the filming locations, and comparisons between how they look, now and then. I recommend this to anyone wondering how the thing got made, and those that are curious about it, in general. 7/10
