Beautiful Raw Documentary
8 May 2014 | by faxanadontsSee all my reviews

I love this type of documentary. Unlike supposed, 'reality TV', this documentary contains poignant raw moments. Similar to Grey Gardens, this film displays straightforward eccentric characters being themselves and by being themselves the base longings shared through humanity can be felt in a way that pulls at the heart. Strongman, 'Stanley Pleskun', wants to be impressive, wants to be loved, and wants to be strong. Whether it is Stanley Pleskun or Stephen Hawking these are the things that drive all humans and documentaries like this remind us that no matter how complicated we might be, or how complicated we might believe ourselves to be, we can all see ourselves in Stanley Pleskun and the people that surround him, and this is both beautiful and sad at the same time, which is no coincidence as life is comedy and tragedy, beauty and sadness at the same time, and often contain moments which are absurd in a hilarious way. If nothing else it is worth watching for the absurd hilariousness of the conversations between Barbie and Stanley.
