Manages to Capture a Subculture in Half an Hour
16 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even if you know nothing about geocaching, you'll find yourself drawn into their world by this film. Do you identify with the Ventura Kids' aggressive quest for numeric leadership at any cost, or do you admire the purity of TRUROKR's relationship with the natural world? Or, alternatively, do you step aside from that dichotomy and find common ground with the lonely pursuit of Aerospacecase? Regardless, it's all there - life in a camouflaged tupperware container.

For those who do know the world of geocaching, there's the pleasure of the inside references - the old debates over park-n-grabs and "power caching," for instance. I've seen this movie twice with audiences of geocachers, and both times it provoked frequent laughter, applause, and talking back to the screen. Nora Donaghy clearly *got* them, and was able to capture their world succinctly. Brilliant.
