adding more character to a movie that already has so much character
16 July 2020 | by locustshadowSee all my reviews

I always appreciated The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, but my appreciation was limited to it being such a unique film in the world of Sci-Fi movies. I really had no idea How unique until I watched this documentary. The story behind this movie is so fascinating and fun, I couldn't tear myself away from it for a second -- I just had to know more. The challenges, the process, the actors... and it is so great to hear in their own words what all went into the making of the movie. I was a moderate fan of the movie before, but after watching this documentary, now I am a huge fan. I now consider the movie a rare gem, and this documentary a rare gift, as it has provided me with both a great appreciation for and love of the movie, that otherwise would not have been possible. Thank you!
