Les Blank documentary


Recommended Posts

Watching the scintillating documentary on legendary guitarist, Mance Lipscomb last nite [or was it this morning?] got me to thinking about other great ones I may have missed. Enlighten me as to your special lists, as I love the documentary style.


For me, the film "Marjoe" from the 1970's about child evangelist, adult con man and huckster tent show revivalist, Marjoe Gortner, coming clean in a full disclosure confessional way, is a must. The scenes with all the backstage pulpit machinations was truly absorbing.


Another favorite of mine was Flaherty's "Nanook of the North" which was so moving, I was truly heartbroken to find that the eponymous star had died but a year after filming I think.


All the Les Blank films were interesting, but that garlic one really made me hungry!
