A well done Travelogue on the elusive, mysterious Bigfoot
21 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

As a people, we tend to view things like Bigfoot as larger than life. We tend to forget that in nature, things occur according to nature's law, and not our need for sensationalism. Marx is indeed a man of the land, and in the course of this movie draws us in with the often subtle ways of nature, interspersed with some rather amazing things- such as the squirrel pulling its injured mate to safety. Marx speaks of the history of Bigfoot and tells us how he was drawn into the search for the creature. Marx tracks the creature up through the Arctic circle, and in "by the" way fashion, shows us how our species is becoming less and less appreciative of our natural heritage. Marx postulates that the creature migrates and is a fierce predator. His search proves him right on the migratory issue, but he has a surprise that awaits him on predation issue. Perhaps here, for many, is where this film is noted as "Boring." Subtlety, quietness, awareness of self and environment and obtaining harmony therein is not what most modern audiences crave and in so doing overlook a part of who we are, and our own place in nature. As a child I remember the Travelogue type of documentary that would draw one in about places and people one could visit. This film is reminiscent of this and has the ring of truth about it. Is it real? Many think so, and so do I. Even if not entirely true, it is well worth watching, if only to be quiet and see nature in a fresh light, and to take a fresh look at ourselves. You can always turn on sex, gratuitous violence and general depravity after wards if you suffer too much from withdrawal. Lol.
