fooling around in the studio on a humid and tired day.

have you guys seen the documentary ‘the grizzly man’? extremely fascinating!

here a few other good documentaries from the past years: born into brothelswaste land & no impact man. do you have some interesting documentaries to recommend me?

Fooling around is something one can't do too often.
Hm, yes, The Grizzly Man, fascinating and quite surreal - but that's maybe because I can not imagine being in his shoes.
My most loved documentary ever is Baraka; stunningly beautiful in every aspect; beautiful, thought-provkcing and heartbreaking.
If you haven't already seen it, I think you would like to.

Obviously I can't write 'thought-provoking'. But that's maybe a good thing because it made me think of two Swedish documentaries
which are both lovely and a bit quirky, 'Gubben i Stugan' and 'Hugo & Rosa'.

definitley "the woodmans". inspiring documentary about the family of photographer francesca woodman.

oh, the Grizzly Man haunts me ever since I watched it...intense stuff! But it was good, and Baraka is definitely good, one of my favourites with a nice soundtrack featuring a Dead Can Dance.

We've recently watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi - it's a documentary about a sushi master and his life-long work of artful food. I loved it, and I recommend it.

Also Dirt! The movie - it's about the human relationship with the giving earth, and about the movement of preserving it and spreading the right farming practices. It might sound boring, but it's not! It's a fun, interesting and well poised film! :)

A last one that I really liked (and I cried over) was Message in the Waves. It's about the state of the oceans and people who love and live the waves and try to make a difference.

Vilken fin serie av en dansande kille! Kram,fortfarande från Helsingfors.Ännu några dagar här...

Ariane Reichardt said...

Oh, I 'know' him
from Berlin, HAU, Yasmeen Godder 'Storm End Comes'
dancing with you, my friend!
makes me smile
waving a 'Hello!'
Fooling around set one free

Documentary? Hmm, I've just seen 'Woody Allen', interesting. Heartbreaking is another... the '9/11' by the brothers Jules und Gedeon Naudet.

Hugs and kisses
your Ariane.
