Personal reflection
29 January 2005 | by ParvulescoSee all my reviews

Redmon showed this at my college in November ('04), I thought it was well done, he doesn't try to tell his viewers what to think- he gives them the benefit of the doubt that they can make their own decisions. He makes an effort during the sweat shop scenes to show the viewer the repetition of the work- with out making you board. He makes some very good deep connections with people which adds to the depth of the film. but he does a good job of showing the contrast between the factory workers and the N'Orleans partiers. i wonder if he decided to leave the bead artist guy clip in or not. i hope he does well at sun-dance, it was a very genuine piece made by a genuine person.
