spectacle vs factory - "smart" as a bodily escape. the viewpoint is somewhat too distant from the aesthetic itself to fathom the fun of it, so the doc renders more a study of oral history than an ethnography, wish it was more playful.
microcosm of confusion, exercise of compassion, delicate and intimate. the visual rhythm is gripping and full of sensibilities. wish the soundtrack was tuned down a bit so the vulnerability seemed less performed.
