Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie

The key to making a compelling documentary is stumbling upon characters within it who ultimately prove to be more interesting and memorable than the storyline itself. King Of Kong had it. Word Play had it. And Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie has it, too. In spades. Featuring a couple of weather-beaten, eccentric buddies in a perennial hunt for the elusive Sasquatch, this indie flick is more about the mentality that drives a smalltown quest for fame and recognition, the occasionally prickly intricacies of friendship, and the unerring belief in a dream that may never eventuate, than it is about roping in the beast. Though that would have been nice to see, too. Engaging, entertaining and endearing, this is one of the better documentaries I’ve seen.
