BUSTING OUT will challenge how you think about breasts. Filmmaker Francine Strickwerda lost her mother to breast cancer as a child, and then was the first in her class to 'develop.' She's been haunted by 'the boobs of doom' ever since. Francine takes us on a journey to explore how attitudes about breasts affect Americans -- diving into the history and politics surrounding this American icon.Written by
A pretty boring and amateurish documentary. The subject is breasts and the subject is covered pretty well. (Pun intended) There are segments on American female body image, as opposed to that of other cultures, cosmetic surgery (eew) both implantic (it's bound to be a word!) and reductive, one on girls hitting puberty, and a very long (and difficult to watch) exegesis about cancer. The jumps from segment to segment were extremely abrupt, with no segue whatsoever. Not even title cards. This is done in a totally serious manner, even excessively so. If anybody sees the thumbnail synopsis in the cable guide and thinks it will be at all titillating (pun intended) they will be sorely disappointed.
