The Year of The Tiger apparently also applied to documentary film.
First, there was the amnesiac in “Marwencol,” who for whatever reason inscribed one of the toy jeeps populating his miniature WWII fantasy world with “War Eagle.”
Now we have the loveable Auburn sweatshirt-wearing grandpa playing straight man to the sassy, comfort food-loving grandma after stumbling upon Australian entrepreneur Joe Cross’ taste test stand, regularly featured in the documentary on Cross’ 60-day cross-country juice fast, “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.”
We love how the film plays with Auburn stereotypes—if there’s one thing we’re known for, it’s our policy on niceness, and our folksy constipation wisdom.
