Movie Recommendation: Grey Gardens

greygardens2

This past weekend I had the privilege to watch the original Grey Gardens documentary for the first time. It was astounding. Every movie I’ve seen by the Maysles brothers impresses me, and this one, strange and voyeouristic, was no exception. I don’t know if it was the chaos, the relationship between the two women, the awkward intimacy, or the artistry in the filming (probably all of the above), but it was completely breathtaking.
