Witty Humour, Professional Production
24 September 2014 | by sinanonlineSee all my reviews

Many movie-makers find a captivating contrast but few work it as intelligent as Taking My Parents to Burning Man. It is rare that you find yourself laughing continuously at a documentary that feels this honest yet is smart and sophisticated. It is a 10k$ school project, but feels as professional as prime time TV or a blockbuster.

The contrast is the director's (Bryant Boesen) parents' going to the radical self-expression festival, Burning Man. As somebody who never heard about the festival, within minutes, I had a clear idea about it. By the end, I knew what it was about, and I had had my best laugh in some time.

It is easy to watch, gets your attention immediately and keeps you laughing throughout as you learn what Burning Man is about and how the parents of this radically-dressed young director interact with it. It is a refreshing change from the complicated world of independent movies.
