"I believe in America"

A Whole Lott More
Tweet-sized Review by John Demetry

"I believe in America": so opens Victor Buhler's A WHOLE LOTT MORE, answering THE GODFATHER's despair over capitalism and power with uncanny human interaction and empathic revelation--Buhler's documentary gift: Kevin's brother's loving caress, Kevin's tour of an art gallery (the Italian Renaissance and the surrealists seen afresh), Wanda's hilariously recognizable then universally moving visit to her parents' grave, and TJ's essential dream ("I want to be a father"); each of them engender--then demonstrate--the imaginative identification required to realize new social-economic possibilities. It's the best documentary since ... Buhler's RIKER'S HIGH.
