I've followed the Prop 8 case closely, having lived in California for 22 years. Even with a pretty complete knowledge of the sequence of events, I have to say that THE CASE AGAINST 8 is one of the best documentaries I have seen, period. Not only is it a very well-made film (expertly edited by Kate Amend), it is also very entertaining, with humor and pathos. Bring your handkerchiefs. The film has a lot of nice details that I did not know about the case, including some real shockers. It also does a great job of showing to gay couples throughout their journey to help make sure that gay marriage becomes (and stays) legal in California. It's an incredible story, and one that everyone should see.

I have been remiss on my blog for the past few months, but with screening season upon us, I do expect to get a lot more reviews up here soon.
