  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film Matchmaking Mayor

    One of the many worthy docs showing at this year's (and this week's) Salem Film Fest in Massachusetts. Though Slavic rather than Scandinavian, this unassuming slice of absurdity is Kaurismaki-esque in its taciturnity, and in its wry, sympathetic, never-quite-mockery of its "characters" -- in this case the very real inhabitants of a slowly depopulating village -- and of one man's ill-conceived mission to re-people it.
