  1. It's so thoroughly engaging, so beautifully made, strikingly shot and chock-full of humor and humanity, I can't imagine any intelligent audience not falling in love with it - if only they take the leap of faith to see it.
  2. 80
    Jensen's use of the conventions of documentary making -- and his undermining of them in ways both bold and subtle -- seems too canny and consistent for the form. Yet the harder I try to decide whether this is a documentary or a parody, the more I wonder why it matters.
  3. 75
    Unusual and utterly disarming documentary.
  4. Ranging in age from 30 to 96, the Berlevag men clearly enjoy being on camera and are unusually candid about their various pasts as Casanovas and hashish addicts.
  5. Every time things start to get dull, you're brought up short by another moment of surprising beauty.

    If music be the food of love, Cool & Crazy could stand a few more hits from the spice rack.
