The Hitchhiking Movie [ 2009 ] [ Hits:7924 ]
Review: The Hitchhiking Movie is the story of Ryan and Phillip, who undertook a bold adventure in 2007, the grueling task of hitchhiking from coast to coast, New York to Los Angeles... in 7 days. Ryan bought an air ticket 7 days in advance, flying the tag team travelers back from Los Angeles and forcing them to do the almost impossible. The US has been inundated with horrors like The Hitchhiker and comedies like There's Something About Mary depicting the dangers of hitchhiking. The thumbs up mode of tra...

The U.S. vs. John Lennon [ 2006 ] [ Hits:4026 ]
Review: The U.S. vs. John Lennon is a strong anti-war biographical documentary about John Lennon, which details the musician’s anti-war political stance and threat to the U.S. government, during the Nixon administration. It tries to answer some tough questions, like: was John Lennon’s murder a political assassination? How involved in politics should artists become? Where is the line between stardom and leadership? The U.S. vs. John Lennon constructs a documentary composed of archive footage of John...

The 11th Hour [ 2007 ] [ Hits:4204 ]
Review: First of all, The 11th Hour is a documentary and not an asteroid action film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Stephen Hawking. DiCaprio is open about his political views and is championing the cause together with Al Gore. This is probably why The 11th Hour was lambasted as ‘liberal propaganda’ by many Americans. Watching The 11th Hour from a non-American point-of-view doesn’t have this effect. Some of the world’s leading authorities and most brilliant minds gather together to voice their c...

Ingrid Jonker: Her Life and Times [ 2001 ] [ Hits:10411 ]
Review: Ingrid Jonker: Her Lives and Time is a biographical documentary based on the life of South African poet and artist, Ingrid Jonker. The film examines her place within society, from her position during Apartheid in South Africa to the vantage point of Nelson Mandela’s famous reference in Parliament. No one can deny that the woman was gifted, and this documentary reflects on her life while acknowledging influences: from regimes to lovers. Her suicide at the age of 31 in Three Anchor Bay immortali...

Man on Wire [ 2008 ] [ Hits:4530 ]
Review: Man on Wire is the story of French tightrope walker, Phillipe Petit. For all intents and purposes, it’s probably better to call him a wire walker as his biggest feats were achieved balancing on cables. Petit’s name is not synonymous with his life. The man’s a living legend with his crowning achievement being an illegal high-wire walk between New York City’s World Trade Center twin towers in 1974. This documentary uncovers Petit’s background and reconstructs events building up to this i...

Rize [ 2005 ] [ Hits:4141 ]
Review: Rize is a documentary that covers the new urban dance culture emerging from South Central gangland. The documentary makes some interesting parallels between the new, angry, identity-driven street dancing with riots from the past, and African tribal dance culture. Rize starts with something of a disclaimer saying that none of the footage was sped up in the making of the film. It’s exactly the impression you get, watching the fast paced dance movements from the dancers. The actions are powerful,...
