Or the Documentary Category Guess That Movie!

Suddenly dvdemon seems to be everywhere you turn on these boards. To welcome him (her?) to GreenCine and to give him yet another forum to expound on the wonderful work of Alex Jones, I'm hosting this non-fiction GTM game.

dvdemon, I invite you to play this game with us and get to know us a little better... the rules are simple. You ask one yes/no question per turn or hazard a guess to the identity of the film in question. If you're not sure how to proceed, I suggest you watch some more seasoned members play for a bit before joining in! This is a standard "basic rules" game, people!

And ALL new members, and old members alike, are invited to play! And while we play, we can engage in idle gossip or talk about DVDs we like and stuff like that... Here goes...

I'm thinking of a film....

Okay, Is the documentary reenacted or ... no, I'll keep it simple. Is the documentary reenacted or performed?

I'm thinking of "The Story of the Weeping Camel" which is filmed as a story yet is listing in IMDb as both "Drama" and "Documentary". I guess the story (a mongolian family goes about its life during a camel birthing season, one of the colts is rejected by its mother so the boys go to time to hire a musician to perform a traditional cerimony. End of story) happened and the film crew said "Now go tell you son to go into town. Now give your child a bath".

Is you documentary similarly "staged"?

Welcome friends! It's so nice to see familiar faces and... questions...

> Was it made before 1974?

YES.

> Is you documentary similarly "staged"?

Strictly speaking, I would have to say YES. There might be some debate as to what degree the INTENT was to STAGE certain events depicted in the film. There I have no idea.

Oh, I just found out that dvdemon has been around at least since June last year! He's new to the discussion boards, though.

Is it Alex Jones' Demonlover or just a bunch of twittle-twattle?

OK, seriously, was it made for TV?

Not to be hijacked by hamano, dvdemon has started yet another Alex Jones thread and is hawking his DVDs in this old thread.

YES. Did you know that Viennese Pastries were actually invented by Hungarian chefs who came to work for the royalty and nobility in the Austrian capital?

Hmmm, 7 up?

Does the answer have anything to do with Alex Jones?

Well, yeah, no doubt during the Austro-Hungarian Empire... Hey, who's been eating my Sachertorte?

Is this pseudo-documentary in Black & white?

Oops, have a bandaid.

I liked the whole 7Up, 14Up, 21Up, etc. series. Aren't they up to 42Up already?

Was it made before 1965?

42 Up was quite a while ago. I've been following them in the theater since 28UP (I thought that was meaningful about life crises when I was 24 but now I can't do anything but scoff at the idea of life creses at 28).

THe kids are about four or five years older than hamano and me. 49Up should be any moment now.

I have a fondness for the physicist in Wisconsin.

S'okay.

Alex Jones is a "no" then?

Hmmm, is it a science/math/natural-science documentary?

I think the point is grinding nuts into the pastry!

Well, I don't know about the "pseudo" but B&W, YES!

> Was it made before 1965?

YES.

> I have a fondness for the physicist in Wisconsin.

Well, good luck you two!

> Hmmm, is it a science/math/natural-science documentary?

Not explicitly, NO, but you could look at it that way.

Cool. I'm big the cat!


so .... is it a political document...

No, scratch that. Did the result of this document lead to political or social change?

For example did it vitalize the space race, institute educational reform, ... stuff like that...

I just deleted those multiple posts, in case you're wondering. Musta been a hiccup of some kind...

Anyway, is this doc on GreenCine's Best Docs list? (self-plug)
