Mike Scholtz

I'm a documentary filmmaker from northern Minnesota.

Making films ruined me as a film critic. Now I'm just sympathetic to everything.

    Does this take place in Florida?

    Because it feels like Florida.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I wish I would've seen this film when I was 10 years old, instead of just hearing about it, constantly, every day, for months and months.

    Seeing it for the first time at the age of 45 is just weird. I probably empathized too much with the fat old drunk man who dies in the first half hour.

    Sigh.

    One of the interviews in this documentary is an 80-something dominoes player in poor health who says he’s looking forward to visiting heaven. 

    But, dude, you are hanging out in a shopping mall that hasn’t been remodeled since the 80s. You are already IN paradise.

    I love this movie.
