It should come as no surprise that Ben does find Jack Rebney and he now lives atop a mountain in Northern California. Nearly 80 years old, Jack is an articulate, well-spoken man who seems comfortable living the life of a hermit. In their first meeting, Jack appears to be a kind, old man unconcerned and even humored by the existence of the infamous video. After a week, Jack begins calling Ben and confesses that he put on an act due to the humiliation that came from the release of the video. This is where we get to know the real Jack Rebney, or as much as this documentary will allow.
The film's biggest flaw is that Ben found a remarkable subject in Jack Rebney, yet doesn't seem to take full advantage of that. Jack Rebney is a fascinating individual; highly intelligent, with a soothing, austere voice. He's very opinionated, thoughtful, hilarious, and unafraid to be vulgar. He's a difficult man, but a likable one. He makes it clear several times that he despises no one more than Dick Cheney and that he's working on a book about religion, life, sex, and politics. Jack sees Ben's film as a way to really show his true self, but I don't feel he was given the opportunity to do that.Read more ›
Watched it hoping there would be more commercial outtakes in this than the ones posted on youtube but there really wasn't.
Was hoping more for a comedy and it went the route of a serious documentary route instead. Also tried more for a feel good life lesson story and that just didn't deliver that well nor belong in the film in my opinion.
Repeated a bit and could have been cut down run time wise resulting.
Nothing wrong with it, just it would be the same as following around the average person which for the most part isn't that exciting.

I didn't know the history. But this documentary was well done and gives the viewer insight into a very outrageous yet very human man who can express himself in myriad ways!Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
