Of all the toys arising from the 20th century, there has never been one like Lego bricks. This film covers the history of this product of Denmark and how it arose from a toy company with an owning family that refused to let either hard times or multiple fiery disasters get them down. Furthermore, we also explore the various aficionados of the product like the collectors, hobbyists, artists, architects, engineers, scientists and doctors who have found uses for this classic construction toy that go far beyond children's playtime.Written by

While the documentary suggests the young filmmakers making the BrickFilm "Melting Point" were editing the final parts of the film when the documentary was released, this was unfortunately not quite the case. In fact, the director was near radio silent on the film's progress until 2017-- a good four years after they announced the film on Kickstarter-- releasing a short BrickFilm explaining what happen to the film: it was too ambitious of a project and he would rather stay creative by becoming a writer. Since then, he has not made any more BrickFilms, however his book remains available on Amazon. He has gone on record saying he will release the scenes he already had filmed, most of which have still yet to be released. Additionally he offered refunds to anyone who contributed on the Kickstarter who requested one. It is unclear whether refunds were successful or not. See more »
Of course, there are some viewers out there who will see this "Brickumentary" as being just a 90-minute commercial for selling LEGO products.
But, on the other hand - This enjoyable documentary goes well-beyond what some may think. And, with that, it actually delivers a very entertaining story that goes further than just being product plugging.
Anyway - Watch "Brickumentary" and see for yourself. And, if you're like me, then, I'm sure that you won't feel at all disappointed with this presentation.
