Another hour-long documentary. This one the latest from the makers of American Movie. The subject this time around hinges on five different eccentrics and their homes: An alligator wrangler and his make-shift house boat. A couple that has made a home out of a missile silo. An old lady that lives in a beautiful tree house in a remote valley in Hawaii. A couple that has turned the house into a full-out cat habitat (and as a cat owner I had to scratch my head and ask “what’s so strange about that?”). And then there’s the guy who’s waaaaay into gizmos — so much so that his house is like a space ship with rotating floors, motorized chairs, and sliding panels pretty much everywhere you go. Anyway, if I could I’d love to couple this doc along with The Natural History of the Chicken — both fit the same mold and have similar appeal.
