|12.24.10||Netflix|| I guess i had the wrong expectations for this. I kinda thought it was a mockumentary a la Spinal Tap, and seemed to have my theory proved correct in the first five minutes when the drummers name was "Robb Reiner," but after watching the whole thing I guess I'm wrong and this is a real band?|
THaat said, I guess this was a good doc. These guys are kind of delusional and empathetic at the same time. Like most docs, this ended up being sad for me because these guys refused to let go of their wilted dream but they have a remarkably good attitude about it (damn Canadians) so i guess that's the feel-good part of it, right? I dunno. Anyway, decent doc I guess although I think I was summarily overhyped for it because I'd heard so much about how great it was it's really just another doc about weird people, except they're not dumb enough to laugh at (American Movie) and not talented enough to be impressed by (Genghis Blues).
Anyways, it's christmas morning, it's snowing outside, and presents await.
