Fantastic
19 October 2008 | by (Maryland, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw Woodpecker at the Flyway Film Festival in Pepin, Wisconsin. It is about a small depressed Arkansas town that is revitalized by the siting of a thought to be extinct Ivory-billed Woodpecker. A bird that strangely enough reminded me of Woody Woodpecker.(This thought occurred to at least one person in the town.) The town is overrun by ornithologists, birdwatchers and skeptics making it's economy boom. The movie follows a passionate bird spotter, Jonny, and his friend, Wes.

It is not until after the credits rolled and the house lights went up, that I began to register the masterpiece of film-making I just witnessed. Any details would spoil the fun. This guy Karpovsky... keep an eye on him. He was not at the festival but I wish he was. This guy is a genius.

This is an incredibly well realized piece and a future addition to my DVD collection once it is released.
