A new film by one of my favorite documentarians, Chris Smith, who’s previously done American Movie, The Yes Men (about these guys), and Home Movie, the last of which is probably my favorite.
A couple of years ago, he made his narrative debut, titled The Pool, from a short story based in Iowa. He flew to India and filmed it in Hindi, a language he doesn’t speak, starring non-actors. I’ve never seen it, and it’s not on DVD. Something tells me this one will be a bit luckier.
