ALL THINGS MUST PASS REVIEWED
“All Things Must Pass” is an amazing first documentary from Colin Hanks. Hanks cuts two stories together about American business success and culture changes. While the store’s founder and others get to talk about the heyday, they still don’t quite get what happened. Hanks makes the case for the store owners not understanding the Internet or the 90s explosion of big box retailers. But, such is life.
I love the sharp cuts between vintage news stories and in-store promos. But, I’m the kind of weirdo that YouTube hunts found footage. For a film that runs 96 minutes, it feels like a ton of footage got cut. It would’ve been great if the documentary came with some special features. For those that prefer HD, there should be a Blu-ray available around the same time of release.
