LIFT – F’n incredible short documentary(about 24 min)

This guy decided to set up shop in an apartment building elevator(which seems smaller than most elevators, which I think adds to the awkward feeling of some of the interviews.)  He sat there for 10hrs a day for several months and filmed the various daily travelers.  Its an amazingly mesmerizing experience……some of the elevator occupants are talkative, some are silent, some are happy and some are borderline full out crazytown.  Its amazing how human beings seek out the need to express themselves, and when they find a captive outlet that “wants to listen”(this may even just be the absence of protesting communication) they begin to flow forward with all sorts of personal stories and info.

Heres a couple of my favies….

This lady was amazing...every time she came on screen I leaned forward in my chair in anticipation of the zany antics that were sure to follow.

if you ever find yourself in an elevator and an old man with black pits for eyes says "I used to be quite famous" and starts making invisible lassos with his hands....gtfo right away...use the escape hatch in the roof

this guy was so strangely intriguing...he was very visibly worried about the camera and kept offering food to the film maker....
