5.0 out of 5 stars I can't wait to go back to PTOWN November 8, 2009
After viewing PTown Diaries.... I can't wait to get back up there and join in on all the fun and excitement that Ptown has to offer!

What a remarkable way to engross the viewer in both the historical and factual lives of PTown residents and visitors. I was amazed at how popular Ptown was with the rich and famous! Great photography and directing!

5.0 out of 5 stars PTown Nostlagia and History October 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
Excellent documentary that covers current people and history intermingled. Beautifully put together, well narrated, brings back memories of the many trips I have made to PTown over the years, and covers the changes that have been occurring there. Little tidbits of history that I never knew before!
A wonderful souvenir of PTown.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you can't get to Ptown--this film will take you there September 11, 2009
Been going to P-town for 15 years--it is one of the greatest towns on earth---this film captures the amazing beauty of the place--with panoramic views and sunsets---and turns us on to the the rich history and crazy assortment of people who live and visit the town. Now when I'm in my apartment in NYC and miss the place--I can pop in this DVD and I'm transported to the tip of the Cape! It's great! Also--check out the bonus footage and original music video. Worth having in your DVD collection.

I love provincetown, I never thought someone could capture the essence of a town and its crazy inhabitants. The film moves seamlessly from history to its present day inhabitants.
Alan Cumming brings the film to life with his amazing narration. The interviews with Norman mailer and Michael Cunningham are superb.
A truly fine film ....Kudos to its creator
Highly recommended , A CLASSIC !!
