TAPES FROM THE REVOLUTIONARY
Total understated genius.
Sarah Bex Rice
Watching two men struggle to have control, to find meaning, and to create art feels like a mirror back on anyone who struggles to create in a world where they have little control. This documentary has a real power in the un-actualized nature of it’s original intention. Perhaps in the un-actualized nature of both the subject and the filmmaker we can learn something about how we approach our lives.
A fantastic film; engaging and funny.
