DIY Double Feature: WALT & EL GRUPO and WAKING SLEEPING BEAUTY

First watch WALT & EL GRUPO, then watch WAKING SLEEPING BEAUTY and be horrified at the drastic downgrade of personal style, social skills and general polish.



Chucking everything else about the films on the shelf, EL GRUPO es mucho más elegante than the SLEEPING BEAUTY crowd.



It's not just them, it was the whole world.  What happened?  Seriously.  I don't think it was just the hippies and what not of the late 60s.  Whatever.  If that era taught us anything it's that what a person actually does/creates is be more important than their clothes.

Still, the people interviewed for EL GRUPO did not have to present the documentary crew with photos of their parents wearing wacky ties, white running shoes and/or Hawaiian shirts to premieres, award shows, and/or meetings with dignitaries.  Honestly, that might be the most important kindness done by anyone in these docs.
