Has anyone seen this documentary? It’s an extremely poignant work from a far too underrated filmmaker, and it is incredibly rare, on an out of print Dvd and only airing once on PBS. How did I see it? My uncle recorded the only showing on PBS to a VHS. The tape has an introduction by Charlie Rose, a haunting narration talking about the film’s disturbing content, the full length film, and then a phone number telling you to call and donate $10 to fund more documentary airings (probably because they spent an arm and a leg paying for the rights to distribute this). It’s an outstanding documentary. Try to seek it out.
I have it on VHS…from PBS….agreed…it’s an outstanding documentary
Not easy to watch and certainly not easy to watch more than once. It’s surely Wiseman’s mangum opus
DVD available from Zipporah films for $34.95. Pricey, but it is an excellent film.
ah you beat me to it tommy
Too quick for ya
I’m aware. My uncle burned me a copy of the VHS tape he had.
I’m curious as to why it’s so hard for anyone to understand to not post links to full films in the forum.
It’s probably the greatest doc of all time.
Sorry guys, I didn’t know this rule. Is there anyway to remove the post or the link?
I contacted a couple of moderators and they’ll take it down soon.
Hey, some people aren’t aware of small rules like that. I personally wasn’t.
Thanks mr. leaves. It’s made pretty well known around here steve.
Well, now I know. I don’t post a whole lot in the forum, and I rarely ever watch films online. Glad the film is at least on Youtube so many can see what is probably, like Dude said, one of the best documentaries ever recorded. Still wishing for maybe a special edition or a Criterion, but due to the thick controversy, it’s a bat-outta-hell’s chance.
This film is one of the rare times that I both really liked (definitely one of my top favorite docs) yet have no desire to watch again.
Should be criterionized. Any movie from Wiseman, actually.
I’d love to have a Criterion Dvd of “Titicut,” but the odds are astronomically against us. It has stirred up so much unhealthy controversy, I doubt Wiseman would want it at the hands of any/everybody (although because of the hefty subject matter, I believe it should be. I hate when companies keep movies from the public). If not a Criterion, I’d love to see it preserved in the NFR.
Wiseman isn’t going to transfer his rights any time soon.
Meanwhile Zipporah is about your only resource since his back catalog is not screened.
I’m trying to seek out a cheap DVD of his film ‘High School," and while Zipporah has it for $34.95, I really don’t want to shell out THAT much for a seventy-five minute film. I’m hoping I can find other options.
