Today I'd like to recommend a documentary I recently re-watched. Don't let yourself be fooled by the finished movie, which is a "train wreck", because the documentary about the original director (and script-writer) being fired by the film company is a hilarious and fascinating tale!  :D

A few years ago I met Richard Stanley (near Montsegur, where he lived), I thought he was an interesting and bright person with lots of knowledge about all kinds of things. He's spent the last 20 years making some documentaries, a few short movies and also exploring the mysteries around Montsegur. Now it seems he'll finally be able to direct a feature film again (I'll keep my fingers crossed).  :smth023

"Destroyer" (watched it in a small cinema last night, original language), found it was very good, dark and a bit confusing (different time settings, in the end you'll understand it all). Nicole Kidman is doing a great job here...

Due to a posting in the "currently listening" topic, I was reminded of this documentary, which I enjoyed some time ago:

Quote...tells the story of a profound, essential, and, until now,
missing chapter in the history of American music: the Indigenous influence.

Featuring music icons
CHARLEY PATTON, MILDRED BAILEY, LINK WRAY, BUFFY SAINTE-MARIE, JIMI HENDRIX,
JESSE ED DAVIS, ROBBIE ROBERTSON, REDBONE, RANDY CASTILLO, TABOO

RUMBLE shows how these talented Native musicians
helped shape the soundtracks of our lives.

Apropos of documentaries, this is worth seeing
