For his second feature, Academy Award winner Errol Morris (The Fog of War, The Thin Blue Line) originally set out to chronicle Vernon, FL, because it had the highest rate of a particular sort of insurance fraud than any other place in the country. Nothing of that original idea survives in the film itself. Instead, in this quirky indie documentary from IFC Films, Morris seems perfectly content letting the camera roll in front of the other eccentrics he found there, using his trademark approach of simply letting his subjects do the talking themselves. Many of them exhibit unusually close relationships to animals, including a turtle keeper, a worm farmer, and most memorably, an extremely enthusiastic turkey hunter.
Touching, Funny, and Bizarre
One of the best movies by Errol Morris and one of the best movies I have ever seen.
This movie rules!
One of his best
works and one that makes me hopful for American cinema. A must for anyone interested in film.
