1975 documentary gem

Two things:

How have I never seen this magical piece of cinema?


When can I watch it again? And again? And again?

I don't know if I could even pick a favorite moment...

Edie's thoughts on being single.

Mother Edie cooking corn on the cob on a hot plate that sits on her bed.

Edie's dance with the American flag.

Or this moment:

I'm so excited to see the other DVD that came out more recently with even more footage. Already put it on hold at the library. Plus the HBO TV movie that won all the Golden Globes last year.

I don't know what it is, but I just can't stop watching. Maybe cause Big Edie reminds me so much of my own grandma. Or maybe it's just how very interesting they must have been.
But I don't know if I could have stepped inside that house with out freaking out. I have to clean up my room each night before I can go to bed or it drives me crazy. A room full of empty cat food cans would have sent me over the edge.
