Glorious SXSW day next-to-last (AKA 8). Since it looks like I'm only seeing two movies tomorrow, I thought I'd suck it up and wake up early for one last full day of movies.
First up was this 47-minute doc on a flea market in Fishkill, NY. You might think it's a great idea and an opportunity to profile the quirky people that work and frequent flea markets - i do - but this doc never gets too deep. It's actually more like if you just took a single trip to one. You meet these people for a little bit then move on, flirt with buying some worthless piece of crap, then leave when it starts to look too depressing. There's a sort-of arc about the market closing and them moving somewhere else or not but it's all very distant and meandering. The movie ends and that's about it. As a student project it's ok. A real movie it's not.
