A documentary without a whole lot to say
24 December 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This documentary was included on the DVD "Full Frame--Documentary Shorts: Volume 5". While Volume 1 was amazing, this later release wasn't nearly as satisfying due to several shorts (including this one) that just didn't seem particularly necessary.

This very short documentary is set in Montana and Idaho during the winter. However, it really doesn't have a whole lot to say. Of course it's very cold and bleak there, but instead of interviews and a narrative, the short just shows people having a weird skiing competition where people are being pulled by horses as they slalom about on skis. There is no explanation as to why they are doing this, the history of the competition or anything--just footage of this peculiar but not especially interesting event. This is accompanied by a few camera tricks that didn't seem to help make the whole thing any more interesting and I frankly could see no reason to watch this film. There was no story to convey--nothing to inspire, educate or excite. Instead, it came off like a home movie without context being shown to strangers. The only reason it didn't get a 1 is that some of the film was very mildly interesting but the whole reason for a documentary film seems to be lost.
