#2,175: Burden of Dreams

World 1-1 - ★★★☆☆
The part with the history of Activision was new to me.

Deep Web - ★★☆☆☆
A summary of the Silk Road case. Less in-depth than some NPR coverage you can listen to out there.

Fitzcarraldo - ★★★½☆
The story of a man with a superhuman ability to reframe his situation. There is no calamity, no defeat that cannot also be a victory! A long movie, but not a wasteful one.

On a side note, it appears to have been shot in English, but also badly dubbed into English? Weird. The sync sound in Burden of Dreams was fine and normal.

Burden of Dreams - ★★★☆☆
Documentaries about the making of movies are usually interesting to me, even though clever documentarians might be responsible for the cliché that movies are always about their own making.

Documentaries about movies that do NOT get made are something I don't think we need so much of, but I guess I want to complete the trilogy of movies about Jason Robards getting sick and quitting movies.
