Movie Diary 6/24/2015

Sunshine Superman (Marah Strauch, 2014). Documentary portrait of BASE jumping pioneer Carl Boenish, a manic oddball who liked to make movies as he fell off cliffs and buildings and bridges. Carl’s footage is woven together with interviews with other BASE enthusiasts (the ones who are still alive to talk about it), including Carl’s equally eccentric wife Jean. There is undoubtedly a large audience of people who will tune in to this movie’s efforts to make all this seem sunny and liberating, and then there will be the rest of us. (full review 6/26)
