Feels good!
26 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Super inspiring documentary about Alan Abel, a fairly well known "media hoaxer". He did things like hired a bunch of people in the Donahue studio audience to pretend they fainted (a "faint" in) and campaigned for the nutritional benefits of eating nothing but hair. It goes deeper too, with some unbelievable stuff I'll let you find out yourself... It was also made by the guys daughter so it's tender and special. Just like you. While you're at it you might want to check out Alan's movie he made in the seventies called "Is There Sex After Death?" and "The Faking of the President". All really funny. He's a wicked good drummer too.
