“Outatime” is a loving look at how Back to the Future co-creator Bob Gale worked with fans to bring the DeLorean back to life. While it is a crowd funded documentary, the focus is spot-on. While the film skews short, an already compressed version was present on the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary release. While there are deleted scenes on the DVD, I don’t know if their inclusion could’ve padded out the film. What is it about documentaries not being feature length that bother me?
I guess it’s because on geek topics, I always feel like there is more to be said. Not everything needs big sweeping gestures, but something bigger than a TV special could probably do more. It’s weird when you’re left wanting more on a topic that you truly dig. Kudos to the directors of this incredible documentary, as I want to see what else they do in the future. It doesn’t even have to be famous car related. Hell, I’m sure Bob Burns has some stuff in his archive that needs restored. Make geek history, gentlemen.
