Description: Jag Mandir is a quiet and often overlooked movie in the vast oeuvre of Werner Herzog. Apparently, 20 hours of footage was shot that covered the entire fest and the movie hardly presents us a twentieth of that. A native walking into the movie in between may well fail to instantly realize that it is his country that is being shown and these are figures from the mythology of different sections of his nation.

Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme #

Released 4/14/2000

Description: From neighborhood ciphers to the most notorious MC battles, "Freestyle: the Art of Rhyme" captures the electrifying energy of improvisational hip-hop--the rarely recorded art form of rhyming spontaneously. Like preachers and jazz solos, freestyles exist only in the moment, a modern-day incarnation of the African-American storytelling tradition. Shot over a period of more than seven years, it is already an underground cult movie in the hip-hop world. The movie systematically debunks the false photo place out by record companies that hip-hop culture is violent or money-obsessed. Instead, it lets true hip-hop artists, known and unknown, weave their storyline out of a passionate mix of language, politics, and spirituality.

Great Barrier Reef #

Released 1/1/1981

Description: Mysterious and only superficially explored by generations of the native Aborigines, Australia's Nice Barrier Reef is one of the world's most extraordinary natural life systems. Twelve hundred miles long and made up of coral, it is the Earth's biggest structure built by living things, in some territories extending 120 miles into the sea.

Sharks, sea turtles, anemones, and the coral itself are the living topics of the camera's probing eye. Overall, this documentary is a comprehensive look at this long-studied web of life that leaves a lasting impression of its depth and beauty.

Minnesota Nice Reviews:

"It's Siberia with family restaurants," is how the Coen brothers describe Minnesota, a zone where they grew up.Ethan and Joel, directors of "Fargo," discussed the zone and the film in this premium detail on the recent special-edition DVD of the movie. Actually, the brothers told they were satisfied to go back and do a movie about something that takes zone up there. However, they don't seem to have fond recollections of the cold weather! As it turns out, they want it had been colder. The fact that it was the second-warmed March in history up there made things tough on them. There was no snow! The filmmakers had to manufacture the snow - variety of it."Minnesota Nice" is a real-life term, used to describe the friendliness of the folks in that zone of the country. "Polite cultures are usually the most repressed and therefor the most violent," tells one of the Coens in a typically-Liberal view which equates something great with bad. Perhaps that's one tipoff about the Coen brothers - they aren't everytime great folks and they think nothing about lying. They imply here that lying is nice if it supports achieve a means to an end. In this case, it was lying to the viewing public that "Fargo" is based on a real story. It tells it in the beginning of the film....but that was fabricated. Even actor William H. Macy tells in this detail that he asked about the situation early on and was said "there is no current case; we made the entire thing up" Macy said them, "you can't do that." They just shrugged. Its interesting the hear some of the another cast members all rationalize for the Coen Brothers' lie about this story. "Well, it helped convince the audience to go along with the storyline (as if that makes it okay), tells Frances McDormand who played the memorable "Marge." Peter Stormare tells (and I quote verbatim), "It IS a real story, but it might have not happened." Huh? Another interesting comments: Macy was originally named in to do the state trooper part but so impressed the Coens that he wound up with co-starring role of "Jerry Lundegard." Macy had to sell himself for this role which he desperately wanted and "was born to do." It jump- started his career, as it turned out. This film made him famous.I enjoyed everyone's comments as they looked back on this movie and particularly found Macy's and Storemare's the most interesting. Stormare came from Sweden and told there are many territories in Minnesota "that are more Swedish than any territories you'll search in Sweden." He loved working on this film, even though he had almost no speaking lines, because on his time off he would go driving around all these cities and talk to the Swedish people.I didn't realize this film had such a large impact on people. In perhaps the most bizarre event of them all, a Japanese girl traveled all the method to Fargo to search the supposed cash hidden in the snow and when she couldn't search it, she killed herself. "That's such as a sad thing that anyone would have that type of need and takes it so far that then now loses their life because of it," told McDormand. "That's just horrible." Amen to that, Frances.I guess all of these things are nice reminders for all of us not to take these stories seriously, even when they boast they are "based on a real story."No, assume it is all fiction and just play the story.


I only watched 'Fargo' for the first time quite recently and had tiny concept of what to expect from it, so I found 'Minnesota Nice' to be very interesting and watching it after the film gave the entire experience a rounded conclusion. I didn't think it went into enough depth sometimes but it did create me laugh by including tiny quirks of the Coen brothers such as their collective laugh. Although it didn't go into depth I felt that most of the movie making aspects were covered from the issues they faced shooting on location, the casting of the actors, voice coaching, and also the public reaction to 'Fargo'. I am a fresh fanatic of 'Fargo' and knew practically nothing about it so notification given in 'Minnesota Nice' (such as the Japanese girl who now went to look for the hidden money) was all fresh notification to me and I found it added to the film experience. Overall I enjoyed 'Minnesota Nice' and would suggest fanatics of Fargo to watch it if they haven't already done so.


"Minnesota Nice" is an American 27-minute documentary from 2003 and this one is of course about the shooting and production of the Oscar-winning film Fargo. Even if the latter is already over 20 years old now, I am sure many folks have heard of it, also due to the cult status of the movie that is reflected on the cute successful tv series based on Fargo that has been running for a while. There are some unique things about the movie. For example, it is one rare opportunity where the movie is really defining for an American state (the one in the game here obviously) in terms of people, landscapes and just general interactions including the accent of course. Or do you know these movies where criminals commit horrible acts of violence and you just cannot search yourself rooting for the cops too much. Well Fargo is the exact opposite, a somewhat defining cop film and McDormand's Oscar just adds to that.But actually back to these slightly under 30 mins we got here. I definitely enjoyed them about as much as I enjoyed Fargo. The interviewees give interesting inside knowledge about the making of the movie and about the(ir) characters. Sure I would have liked some more Buscemi at times, but that's just subjective of course. All in all, I trust that this is a nice watch for everybody who likes Fargo and it now got me in the mood to check the movie out again. Other strength from this one that will have its 15th anniversary next year is that it never enters zone where it basically tells nothing except "look at how nice our movie is, look at how nice we are. That approach I have seen in Minigame of Thrones making-of documentaries for example. But this one here is as insightful as entertaining and the only thing I wish to disagree with is Macy's comment about the Coens acting like stoners which is definitely not the compliment it was intended as. Thumbs up, go check it out.
