Lately I've gotten into watching art documentaries on Neflix (instead of reading!) I thought I'd start a new series sharing those here. Recently I watched Academy Award nominee Cutie and the Boxer.
I've watched lots of documentaries lately but this one stood out to me because it wasn't so edited for a certain message. The filmmakers allowed me to have my own opinions and draw my own conclusions. I found myself jotting down some lines...
"Art is a demon, a demon that drags along. It’s not something you can stop, even if you should."
"Life is wonderful. Life should be positive. When it's blown to pieces, that's when it becomes art. Art is messy and dirty when it pours out of you."
What other Netflix documentaries should I see? I've heard lots about Exit Through the Gift Shop so that may be up next.
