I watched another intriguing documentary over the past few days. It was an odd mix of home movies on acid called Tarnation. I started watching it alone one night in my dark bedroom and had to shut it off because it was too creepy. I really can't recommend it to many people as it was pretty slow & the video was edited with IMovie, that is to say it is not for a wide audience. With that said, it was very well told & I am glad to have seen it. It tells a very dismal story of a mentally ill woman who became ill after shock treatment many years ago. It has a sad story that just gets sadder as it goes with no happy ending. Now I am left here after watching it feeling a little melancholy but, again, thankful for what I have.
