Fast, Cheap & Out of Control (1997)

4 Stars (out of 4)


By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Errol Morris is our greatest living documentary filmmaker, and this may be his greatest film. Cross-cutting between four subjects, Morris explores the constantly twisting nature of life as his interviewees attempt to tame and control it. One man builds robots, another studies naked mole rats, a third is a lion tamer and the fourth is a topiary gardener. Morris' attractive, unusual cinematography and cutting, plus his inspired use of stock footage, give his movies a personal vision that few other documentarians ever reach. The disc comes with trailers.
