Documentary Watch: Old Partner
I recently had the chance to check out the Korean-made documentary "Old Partner." The film is as funny as it is dramatic, as uplifting as it is grounding, as sentimental as it is frivolous (though between you and me, I don't see the Koreans really making anything with frivolity in mind, a notion that seems to translate directly to this film's protagonist: a hard working man who never ever quits.)
Chances are this film isn't playing in your town. But if you're one of the lucky ones that has it (Chicago, NY, LA, Dallas (maybe), Atlanta), check it out. It's highly worth your 10 bucks.
