goodnight unknown

i am in love with this small documentary. its truly a personal little statement. i would love to spend so much time with an artist as they are making a record like this.

Lou Barlow - Goodnight Unknown Documentary from Merge Records on Vimeo.

documentary film is sharing a second hand experience. the trick is finding that experience that is worth sharing.

and finding a documentary you want to watch is kind of like shopping at garage sales. i suppose it goes without saying that i might see new life in old trinkets that no longer interest you.

its up to the documentary film maker to arrange the odds & ends and fragmented moments into a meaningful collage. a total product you might find more interesting than the sum of its parts.
