The Suffering and Celebration of Life in America

Went to see this at the Clinton St. Theater tonight. You can read a brief synopsis of the movie itself here.
The most entertaining part of the show, for me, was actually Shane and Amy Bugbee themselves. Their stories wrapped around the footage (presented in a series of webcast-length snapshots) to provide more of a portrait of two fascinating people, and the lens through which they view life, than just going to your average documentary could possibly have offered. It was like going to your wacky cousin’s house and watching their home movies. There were even cookies.
