Am I the only one really annoyed by the title "Wild Blue Yonder"? I keep getting this film confused with the Herzog doc that came out two years ago which seems to have a much better claim to it content-wise.

Beautifully written, AJ. While I haven't had the privilege to see either WILD BLUE YONDER or MY MOTHER'S GARDEN, I certainly get a great picture of both from your description. What you just wrote is a perfect example of how documentary films should be critiqued -- not just on the basis of subject matter, but also mixed in with evaluations of structure, ethics, and craft. Well done.

Aj,

I was not at HotDocs, although I did see My Mother's Garden at True/False and was so moved by the film I had to go for a long walk afterwards. Glad to see the film in discussion here.
