Storyline

MOLE MAN follows RON, a 66-year-old autistic man who has spent the last five decades building a 50-room structure in his parents' backyard. Using no nails or mortar, Ron instead creates perfectly balanced structures from scavenged materials he finds in the woods outside his Western Pennsylvania home. When Ron's father passes away, leaving him living alone with his 90-year-old mother, Ron's siblings are left to figure out what's best for Ron - who has never been officially diagnosed with autism - when his mother can no longer care for him. In an effort to find the money to keep Ron in his home, his friends team up in search of a mythical mansion Ron insists lays abandoned in the forest. But will they be able to find it? And, more importantly, does it even exist? This is the story of an extraordinary life, a family, and the beauty of thinking differently.

How can there be a 7.5 rating but nobody reviewed this?...this thing is a treat...so, disconcerting how the 'mental health people' are over weight and Ron is in great shape like most 'crazies' are....this thing shows how the 'crazies' are how we all ought to be living in order to be real...but, a real dude gets 'analyzed', 'psychological label laid on him' and dismissed from our society because he ain't 'productive' to society as a 'whole'...holy moly...i liked whoever was throwing the questions at him that the mental health people didn't bother to ask...'do you know who Brad Pitt is?'...'never heard of it'...we'd all be better off if we didn't know who the stars were but who nobody is or who the guy next door is...he's just playing around making life comfortable for himself and others preferring his own company to that of 'others' (society)...i'm so tired of 'being social' or even trying to relate to 'our society'...i am getting to be so much not a 'people person' even though called great 'with people'...i man be a 'social animal' but i am a personal spirit..being 'personal' is where 'it is at'...being 'social is baloney' indeed...yepsidoodle dandy...wonderful little gem...i passed by it many time thinking it would be 'syrupy' but not so...the guy asking the questions talked 'with him' ... so did some of the folks whose house's he picked up..'do you know 'Titanic'?'...'oh, yeh, right here in the drawer'.....PIGS AND FROGS DON'T FLY...'mental health' thinks a comment like that makes a person not imaginative or creative or thinking too abstract...poppy cock...Pigs Don't Fly and neither do Frogs...Disneyland jazz is all well and good but Pigs Don't fly...we do...Ron is 'flying all the time' because he found reality...reality found him...the flick shows how 'friends' know what's real from what's not real...friends, oh yeh...good going guys
