fascinating stuff, with one flaw
24 October 2011 | by (an eeeevil oil rig in Baja) – See all my reviews

The documentary itself is very interesting. The interview subjects are fascinating and the work they do is amazing. You'll never look at a plain piece of paper the same way. My inner nerd was particularly interested in the math and engineering aspects of paper-folding, and it's always nice to be reminded that the great artists do their best work when they're working under restrictions.

Alas, director Vanessa Gould inexplicably chose to narrate this herself, and her voice-over work is so annoying and affected that it just about submarines the whole thing. I had to watch it in small doses, even though it's only 50 minutes long. A good VO performer would have made all the difference.
