Monument #

Released 1/1/1976

Description: The clacking of heels on the floor, to the rhythm of a measured walk, accompanies the movement of a camera that scrutinises a boy in close up. Slowly, the camera turns around him, from his feet on the floor to the top of his head. The boy doesn't transport a muscle, with his arms lying straight by his side, as though he has become an object under a woman's eye, identifiable by the sound of her footsteps. The closeness of the camera fragments and fetishises the body. There are no wide shots at any mission that might enable the boy to be identified. The fragments glimpsed by the camera do not deliever any identifying markers, rendering the overall view disproportionate. Like a "monument", the figure is presented to the audience.

His antagonist Timothy discovered a gold bearing creek many years ago. Actually he spends his winters in the Philippines while toiling away in the summertime.

In a photography class, students of different origins present how they experience the city. Apparently, original residents, expats and workers live mostly separate lives in a class society where the labourer is driven into the ground and the rich housewife thinks everyone in the town is happy.

I Hate Christian Laettner #

Released 3/15/2015

Description: He made perhaps the most dramatic shot in the history of the NCAA basketball tournament. He's the only user to begin in four consecutive Final Fours, and was instrumental in Duke winning two national championships. He had looks, smarts and game. So why has Christian Laettner been disliked so intensely by so many for so long? Maybe it was the time he stomped on the chest of a downed player, or the wars he had with his teammates, or a perceived sense of entitlement. But sometimes, perception isn't reality. "I Hate Christian Laettner" will go beyond the polarizing persona to reveal the finished storyline behind this lightning rod of college basketball. Featuring extensive access to Laettner, previously unseen footage and perspectives from all sides, this movie will be a "gloves-off" examination of the boy who has been seen by many as the "Blue Devil Himself." - Written by Anonymous

Big in Japan Reviews:

Wonderful insider's and outsider's experience of the Large In Japan phenomenon as a Foreign Idol. What makes this documentary is that you receive to travel with one of the documentary making squad members, Dave, throughout the 2-3 years he puts himself into this social experiment. It's real, it's raw and its really funny! There are also really touching moments in the piece as well that only a nice documentary maker can capture.


I did not expect this. This was a very entertaining and honest docu about a guy, Dave, trying everything on his method to receive famous. On his method he befriends with Bob the beast, Ladybeard and Kylie, an Idol. This depiction of the pursuit of fame from various characters is very interesting. All are struggling in life and it takes a lot of sacrifice to achieve their dreams.


A refreshing and funny look at the meaning of fame and the costs of pursuing it. David, Lachlan and Louis have created a fascinating narrative, which serves as a timely reminder of the fleeting and fickle nature of fame in today's social-media-obsessed world. One of my favorite documentaries of all time. Brilliant.
