This is my 2,015th movie review
Thanks to Nelson for recommending this film to me!
Number of Times Seen – 1 (16 Feb 2016)
Brief Synopsis – A documentary about 6 brothers who have lived a very sheltered life and only know about the real world via movies.
My Take on it – Being a movie lover, I expected this film to be much more engrossing and enlightening than it was.
Obviously, I feel lots of sadness and compassion for the way these young men were raised because such a sheltered life cannot be a picnic at all.
I think that not enough effort was put in for us to try and understand these men who in their own ways take their obsessions to the extreme.
I wanted to like this more than I did, but there wasn’t enough to grab onto here.
Perhaps when they do a follow-up movie, we’ll be enlightened more properly by the continuing stories of these young movie-obsessed men.
Bottom Line – Sad story that unfortunately doesn’t tell us very much about these movie-lovers to help enlighten us. So much more could have been done with this documentary in order for us to try and better understand these young men. Perhaps if they ever do a follow-up movie, we will get to understand these young men much more.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Tyler Hollinger a NYC based actor and comedian is seen briefly in the doc when Mukunda gets a job as a PA. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
