Film & TV 2 Documentary Reviews

Black Cat

Well executed and put together. Great way to the screening to get underway.¬†Interesting to see people with different beliefs and how their superstition affects their behavior. Humorous and engaging, especially the lady who wouldn’t want anything associated with the no. 4 because it comes across as bad luck because it means death in Chinese. For this reason, to avoid the no. 4 such as house number, table number, or phone number was interesting. I was surprised to learn also that no. 4 is actually good luck in Philippines.

Sneakerhead Collective

For me, I think this was the one that stood out during the screening. It was bold and innovative of them to get one of the Tech guys, as part of the cast. The reaction from the crowd says it all. This was a unique choice of topic, and I can’t imagine the amount of work they have put into this. It was fascinating to see how people from different backgrounds are so obsessive Nike and Jordan sneakers, how much they know their stuff, and how it means much more than just a shoe to them. It was quite staggering amount of money that all these people have spent put together. Their cinematography and shots was excellent as well, especially the shoes coming all over the person lying on the ground and the way they put the credits together.

Blackout

Simple topic but also a reminder to us about the importance of electricity in this day and age. We often don’t realize the importance of electricity and we are not aware of how there are many things around us require the power of electricity. Technically, well edited and very good audio. Not many of us wouldn’t have a candle at home these days with just goes to show how accustomed we’ve been with electricity.
