This is the first Les Blank doc I've watched, and I'm pretty in love with his filmmaking.
It's so fascinating to watch his camera seemlessly meld into these little subcultures, and even more fascinating to watch his subjects wax poetic about their favorite garlic usages, and spontaneously break out into song.
Blank creates an atmosphere that puts us into these unusual places we may not have known about, as a total fly on the wall. That cognitive dissonance of bizarre elements with total realism is fantastic, and I can't get enough of it.
I'm very excited to explore more of Blank's films.
