A little too long for not that long ago...
2 June 2007 | by JonathanWalfordSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this documentary but I was wanting to enjoy it more. In the end, it wasn't funny enough, short enough, or politically or historically focused enough. This film was essentially a recap of the summer of 2003 in Canadian history. The documentary trod back and forth between gay marriage and the legalization of marijuana without fully covering either story completely or in context of a broader historical perspective, Canadian/U.S. relations, or post 9/11 politics. What did I expect? I guess something that was perhaps more 'documentary' in style but considering the subject matter also had a good dose of tongue in cheek irony to keep the whole expose light hearted and moving along. Instead I found myself checking my watch and wondering when they would get on to the conclusion. Its good, but not great.
