A town that is certifiably insane....
24 October 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Brimstong & Glory" is an unusual documentary because there isn't a lot of narration or dialog. Mostly, it's like being a guest at the most insane fireworks celebration in the world in the town of Tultepec in Oaxaca, Mexico (in the far south). Here, folks throw all caution aside and instead of shooting fireworks HIGH into the air, they shoot them just about everything...in the air, of course, but also pretty much everywhere. And, in a weird show of machismo or faith, the folks (mostly the men) dance about in the midst of this flaming chaos. Yes, many are burned or severely injured...which makes me glad we can see this on film instead of actually being there! Because of the danger and because it's a very pretty film to watch, I do recommend you see it...but there really isn't much to it...just a little over an hour of folks risking life and limb!
