I have a feeling this might just be one of those landmark things that at first gets somewhat minor play, but then becomes talked about and talked about to the point where it's the biggest deal on the planet. So yea. Watch up.
Filmed in 20 different states, "The House I Live In" is essentially half of the sh*t that "The Wire" was all about, combined with real world consequences, real world politicking, and the debilating effect this is all having on the America we claim we live in. It looks to be as exhaustive as it is compelling, and definitely has that undisputable "holy sh*t, we should really do something about this" flair. Judging by the trailer, this looks to be GREAT stuff.
The film won the Sundance 2012 Grand Jury Prize for Documentary, and will have a (limited) release to theaters on Friday, October 5th.
