Movie: Buried Land
This is a documentary about some new (imagined) pyramids in a village in Bosnia. Or rather; it is a documentary about making a documentary about some new (imagined) pyramids in a village in Bosnia. I usually find that there are few things as pathetic as journalists writing news stories about journalists, but at times, filmmakers making films about filmmaking comes close.
The basic history - about the bosnians who walked up a hill and came down a pyramid - is a bit interesting. The background of the "filmmaker" - returning from exile now that Bosnia is once again peaceful - is also moderately interesting. However, those two bits together, added to a few personalities that are depicted, does not add up to a great movie. Not even close.
