documentary

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Since his pre-teens, director Courtney Fathom Sell and his friends have made movies, in their backyards, on the less-travelled streets of town, on the local beach ... well, pretty much everywhere they could, and mostly on disposable cameras. It was not because they wanted to create the next masterpiece, rather to recreate the feel of the fare they tended to rent at their local mom-and-pops video store - and mostly those were genre movies, so Courtney and friends would frequently run around with chainsaws, covered in blood, or whatever other gruesomeness they could get away with based on their limited means. But these kids made these movies for the pure joy of making movies, sometimes they wouldn't even watch the results, and if watch then often only show them to a small group of people if any, it was really the pure magic of filmmaking that kept them going. But Courtney and company's efforts didn't merely result in a handful of cheaply made intentionally trashy movies, he also made a rather touching tribute to his father who had just found out about his terminal cancer, and the film both made it easier to handle his pain and his family to deal with grief ...

 

Now what you don't see in Tracking Issues is the early years and evolution of a master filmmaker in the making - because that's not what the movie has set out to do, as basically it's just a loveletter to backyard filmmaking, that's often (as in Courtney's case) the seeds for a later filmmaking career, and that's also a very innocent way of making a movie, as it's less about the quality than the process of just doing it, a certain laissez-faire attitude that gets lost more and more even in the indies. And weirdly enough, after watching Tracking Issues, one kinda sorta wants to watch a few of Courtney's very early films, not for their quality (or relative lack thereof) but for the love put into them - that's how infectuous this documentary is!
