    Fighting in the Age of Loneliness

    ★★★★½

    I watched this months ago but it's imperative that everyone knows that Bois is the most fascinating working documentarian. Literally nobody else is doing what he's doing in the way that he's doing it, much less with his simultaneous awe for both melancholy and triumph. He's the YouTube Ken Burns, one day they're gonna start ripping him off and it's going to change the form completely.

    I don't have anything constructive to say about this. It's a nearly perfect adventure film, gorgeous, twisty, exciting, short. If you don't get a kick out of it there's probably no helping you.
