A friendship story.
1 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had no idea what to expect from this film. The title throws you off, but as soon as you start watching, you start to figure out what it really means. While the documentary backdrop may be a poor town where Bigfoot hunting is a means to an end... for Wayne and Dallas, it's what brought them together, and made them best friends.

It's hard to not get a lump in your throat while watching, as the rocky relationship plays out, but everything is so tastefully done that you have to commend the filmmaker, Jay Delaney.

I rarely see documentaries worthy of high rating, but the realistic people portrayed here are much more interesting for me to watch than some person so OUT of the ordinary a doc is made about them.
