| Stunning - A must see
I saw this at the Fort Lauderdale film festival and it jumped into my soul. It's about as compelling a guy as you can find but the story telling is pitch perfect as well. It took fifteen minutes for me to decompress on my own outside the cinema. Very powerful stuff. I then had the joy of seeing it again at the Santa Fe film festival and second time it hit me as hard. It is for me one of the two best things I saw last year, the other being Man on Wire. When are fiction films going to live up to the standard of the best of their non fiction siblings. Bear in mind Man on Wire beat Slumdog Millionaire for the Best British Film Award at the British Academy Awards this year.

Please go see this film as you won't regret it.
