Don't Scrap It, Watch it
4 January 2012 | by heig-whittierSee all my reviews

For a documentary about metal and rocks, it sure does tap in to some emotional hot spots. The film focuses on a late aged architect/contractor/outcast that insists on building his own stone version of the Sagrada Familia in bucolic Colorado. In essence, it's a paradoxical balance of WTF?, drama, art & dry humor. Not a super endearing or charismatic movie, but definitely sucks you in via its Dr. Seuss-ish realization of the inane & interesting. (Colorado itself makes quite the appearance with a fair amount of majestic scenery peppered throughout the movie.) More of a muted, bittersweet family drama, Scrap clearly emerges as a small-scale delight. The low-key, seemingly eccentric charm of Scrap is best watched with an open mind; there are some brave and vulnerable scenes that might be a touch tragic for viewers, but are necessary to buttress the seemingly endlessness of the projects profiled within the film. The glamour of the film is in the scrap creations and definitely not in the machinations of the creators. In a nutshell, Scrap is a story of extraordinary people facing an unfortunate tragedy in a picturesque setting. Some highly symbolic creations metaphorically chart the family dynamics woven throughout.
