Jessica Yu's documentary explores the relationship between human life and Euripidean dramatic structure by weaving together the stories of four men: German terrorist, a bank robber, an "ex-gay" evangelist, and a martial arts student.
This documentary exceeded my expectations. I at first was a little worried about seeing this movie with a name such as "last call at the oasis". But the flow of the story with superb cinematography and good sound really kept me GLUED to my seat. With special appearances by a few well known celebrities I really felt that those made the movie go from good to great. The movie started out scaring me but than started to humor me. I really enjoyed how they had a special appearance from Erin Brokivich and included parts of the narrative film to help viewers get the idea of what they were saying. Although I did really enjoy this film, after seeing the solution they came up with to solve our problems... I feel that we are still hopeless. But the film itself was seriously wonderful and if this documentary isn't one of the most successful documentaries out there I will be extremely surprised. Way better than Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth and in my opinion even more affective than food inc.
