Screwball

This documentary is extremely well done.  Because of the absurdity of the subject matter (and the clowns involved) the director had free reign to keep this very light.   As he interviewed those involved he often had children acting out the scenes and mouthing the words of the interviewee.  Couple that with some well-timed music beds and it made for a breezy yet very interesting documentary.  Also, despite the baseball backdrop it really isn’t about baseball (my wife also enjoyed it).
