Open Five and Open Five 2 (an hour long each and available to watch for free at Vimeo) are lovely films: narratively loose but with formal intelligence and a documentary weight that comes from an attentiveness to people and place.
Nervier and more exciting than the first OF because it folds all of that movie's sharply rendered social-relationship material into Holy Land's reflexive hijinks. It doesn't move like anything I've seen this year, maybe ever (my first impulse is to call it something like diaristic, but it's more immediate and fleeting than that implies). Also, Kentucker has turned into just a really damn good actor.
