Moving, tender, and subtle,
This review is from: Marwencol [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I found the documentary to be fascinating and uplifting. Uplifting because this gentle spirit manages to recover some dignity of life after his tragedy and creates this wonderful, evocative world-fantasy that he, at some level, lives in - that comforts him - but that he understands is not real. Populated with his real-life friends and his archetypal enemies, his fantasies and his realities, it is, in the end, a more righteous place than the world we live in.
And he is such a complex and interesting man. So private, but so honest and forthright when he talks about himself.
And then there is the story itself. Of a man that experienced such hate and suffering and somehow came through it to create this strange, private world.
I loved the film. I think you might, also.
