OK, the mockumentary form is officially old. I don't know if this is traditionally a SXSW trait or if it's just this year but it seems like 90% of the movies that I've seen this week have either been in documentary format, whether fiction or non-fiction. Is it a budget thing? it's easier to put some fake experts in a room rather than worry about actual scenes with character and continuity of emotion and all that crap? Well for whatever reason, I am just about doc'd out for a while.
This movie... just didn't work for me. It's about a pair of conjoined twins (connected at the chest) who become a successfull punk band in mid-70s England. It sounds interesting and it had pretty interesting people behind it but it was slow and tedious and not as cool as it should've been. I wish it was better and/or I enjoyed it more but oh well. A downer. It really made me tired. The only thing that really got me through it was that almost everyone had told me the next movie was good.
