About the Movie
Experience a soul searching and inspirational drift boat journey down the longest undammed river in the contiguous United States. Connect with colorful characters, get lost in the hypnotic cast of a fly rod, and savor silhouetted moments of fireside stories on this heartfelt river adventure. From the Gateway to Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana to the confluence of the Missouri River at historic Fort Buford, North Dakota, two boats drifted north on the freestone waters of the Yellowstone River. For 30-days, the crew is surrounded by the peaceful sounds of a massive water flow, flanked on each side by rugged mountains, plains full of big game, and an unending sky showcasing bald eagles and osprey. Stops in both booming cities and dusty, dwindling towns along the Yellowstone River, illustrate the history and controversies surrounding this enigmatic watershed leading to questions about its future. Director Hunter Weeks (10 MPH, Ride the Divide) presents a thoughtful exploration of life on America's great, undammed river, the Yellowstone. With Montana's captivating scenery at the forefront, Where the Yellowstone Goes takes a closer look at the impact people have on each other and on our environment.
Beautiful scenery, horrible movie
I watched this documentary really just wanting to enjoy a movie about something I've always wanted to do, which is float the Yellowstone river. What I got was some great footage, and a ton of mindless, annoying, and ridiculous talking. The two main guys kept talking about Louis and Clark at the start as if they were somehow kindred spirits.....seriously? They were eating cheez-it's and at one point spring salads with feta cheese and rosemary potatoes. There's no comparisons between the two. Other than that they fished, talked about "rip rap" (which is just rocks on the banks to control erosion *gasp*), talked about trains in a negative light, hated on petroleum dependency, and stopped off in towns along the river for a refreshing Guinness at local pubs. I guess what irked me the most was that they talked so badly about petroleum, and how we need to help the environment, but were covered in clothes and camping equipment that uses petroleum in its manufacturing process. These aren't bad folks at all, just a little full of crap, especially the guy with the glasses. Complete tool. Would say these "deep" things that made absolutely no sense. All in all it's a movie about some wealthy nature lovers, with way too much equipment and little insight, who are making an attempt at "roughing it." Ha.
Some idiots go rafting in beautiful Montana
Want to watch a bunch of shallow, boring 20-something losers raft for 30 days and talk about beer, fish and grunt about how nature is good and oil spills are bad? Then this the movie for you! The only good characters are the ones they meet along the way, and even then, most of them are as boring as the main characters. The movie desperately needed a poet, an historian, a scientist, a philosopher, a theologian—please, anyone who had something interesting to say.
Even the gorgeous beauty of Montana is not enough to save this from being the least thought-provoking, shallowest and most boring documentary I have ever seen.
