homemade documentary for a hometown story
12 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you've come to expect sensationalism and dogma in your documentaries or demand art school cred and irony, then this is not a documentary for you. This isn't for those who need to get juiced on a cause du jour or hyper-partisan perspective. This is one of those simply made documentaries, low budget, well-told, interesting, brief (just over an hour), and unexpected.

It's a slice of life drama that won't change your world view, but will remind you of some old lessons. It's a bizarre tale of an immigrant's dream turned fantasy for both himself and those around him and, ultimately, the reckoning of reality vs. dream world.
