Today's Monday Movie Meme from The Bumbles is all about the documentaries you would like to see made. Personally, docs are one of my favorite movie genres. I mean, a good director can make anything interesting, and you might even learn something too.
But come up with some doc ideas of my own? Haven't they basically all been made in one form or another? (Puts head in hands) You guys are killing me!!! This is a Monday morning! After a week off! OK, fine. Here are some ideas, but I'm not promising they are original!!
The hidden lives of the homeless: I think the homeless could use a little extra empathy. Some of them are scammers and some aren't. How do we know the difference? What about the personal stories of successfully employed workers who fell on hard times or got a mental illness? How can we help?
Cat stories: When I let Casper out in the morning, and he comes back at night all dirty, with burs in his coat and a wound on his tail, I always wonder what the hell he has been up to all day. How cool would it be to follow him around with a camera, or even attach a camera to him. Take it one step further and imagine his twisted internal thoughts. I haz can cheezburger?
Hoarders: Every now and again, I run across that reality show where they try to help hoarders overcome their sickness. I am totaly fascinated with these people, and in a selfish way, it makes me feel better about my messy house! Why not a full-length film? I bet there is plenty of material out there.
Biography of Viggo Mortensen: I'm just saying.
