I’m engrossed David Sutherland’s documentary “Country Boys” currently running on PBS. The three-part film concludes tonight. If you haven’t watched any of it, don’t ruin it by watching tonight. Sutherland’s followed these Appalachian teenagers around for five years, and we’re going to see how everyone turns out tonight. He’s an astute artist — hard to imagine that he realized following two teenagers around for five years would be an engrossing film. But it is.
You can watch the entire film on the PBS web site, which is pretty cool. Not sure if that’s new, but I don’t recall seeing that option before. I guess you could download the film to your laptop and watch it on an airplane. This Internet thing is pretty cool.
