Writing Reviews for Filmmakers That You Dated Not That Long Ago is Not Awkward at All


Check out this movie tonight if you can. You'll poop your pants you'll be crying so much.
From East Austinite website....

If you weren’t able to check out the amazing documentary, “Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo“, at South by Southwestthis year, well now is your chance! Local Austin director Bradley Beesley’s documentary about the Oklahoma prison rodeo premieres tonight on Cinemax Reel Life at 7PM. A fan favorite at SXSW, Beesley’s movie was quickly snapped up by HBO during the festival. Beesley is no stranger to documentary filmmaking. His curriculum vitae boasts the Oklahoma hand fishing doc, “Okie Noodling”, and the quintessential Flaming Lips film biography, “Fearless Freaks”, amongst many others. 

I had the pleasure of seeing “Sweethearts” at the festival this year. I mostly cried through the whole gosh dang movie. Not a bad, “I feel like crap and want to eat a tub of ice cream” kind of cry, but rather a warm, “I now feel motivated to go out and do something selfless” kind of cry. The film highlights four female prisoners and one male prisoner and their day-to-day struggles leading up to the yearly prison rodeo. Beesley does a tremendous job telling their individual stories and educating us with the seemingly unfair statistics surrounding female prisoners in Oklahoma. This movie is a must-see for sure.
