“Later he saw Jesus move from tree to tree in the back of his mind, a wild ragged figure motioning him to turn around and come off into the dark where he might be walking on the water and not know it and then suddenly know it and drown.” (Flannery O'Connor) There's wisdom here if you know how to listen right - a certain amount of roundabout inarticulacy is necessary if you want to approach the mysteries of life.
A warm, simply done documentary about a place/sensibility. What is Florida? A statewide hodgepodge. The movie hints at certain themes, but mostly it seems to come down to a certain "How does one pass the time?" The flick's brevity helps, though, I could probably watch vignettes of this town for a couple days.
A truly weird documentary, showing life in a small town in Florida, and its unique residents. The film attempts no more than to linger on the daily lives of the townsfolk, and listen to their stories and individual intrigues, such as a man who is obsessed with turkey hunting, and a captivating sermon on the meaning of the word “therefore”. Fascinating without really being about anything.
The kind of documentary you long for, simply beautiful ordinary life. Full of everything that is beautiful about the simplicity and wisdom and folly of small town folk. Perhaps it's weakness is in it's lack of real arc from beginning to end it still was quite a delight and made me laugh quite a bit.
