    There’s enough here to merit a watch. One of the movie’s more unexpected pleasures is Alexander Falk’s handsome digital cinematography, which goes far beyond the call of duty for a micro-budget documentary.

    The documentary's refusal to challenge the comfort zones of its target audience is apparent throughout.
