Storyline

A man loses his leg in an accident. Another man accidentally buys it at a North Carolina auction. The story only gets stranger from there. This is a rare, truly laugh-out-loud doc. An expertly crafted narrative gets under the skin of lives that are forever changed when a crazy small-town feud becomes a national media circus. The result is both hilarious and tragic. An astonishing, stranger-than-fiction tale of greed, ego and redemption.

I can't fault this really stunning documentary.

When the director stumbled across the numerous eccentric characters who made up this film, I'm sure he couldn't have believed his luck.

However instead of ridiculing the characters, he sensitively lets them tell their own stories in their own way.

Make no mistake - the end result will make you laugh out loud, which is why you should watch it in a crowd. However much of the humour comes from the editing rather than cheap shots at the characters' expense, and you will find yourself respecting both them and the director.

You'll also spend much of the movie thinking you are watching a mockumentary, since most of the stars are outstandingly telegenic, and the story - well it's too bizarre to be fiction.

The soundtrack is superb, as are the editing, the direction, the way the clips are woven into a story with a history and an ending, the attention to detail, and even the camera work.

Happy to give up a couple of hours of my time to this movie, and anything else by the same director.
