The Last Blockbuster ★★★★½

Finally got around to watching this. What a delightful documentary covering a piece of our culture that has all but become extinct. The nostalgia trip that this doc provides is so wonderful.

But the most satisfying and fascinating thing about The Last Blockbuster is how much it's about how this massive corporation that was once a dominant force in its industry has turned into a family business in Bend, Oregon. There's something really wonderful about that narrative. It speaks to the cultural history of the video store business model and how it can endure the collapse of its corporate entity and still survive as a small, family-owned business.
