The Sky Above, the Mud Below (1961)

Notes: 2/28/11
Best Documentary Feature Oscar Winner
Kind of plodding.
Footage of Papua New Guinea certainly doesn't make me want to visit.
Narration carries the movie
Quite a journey, admittedly.


Review: C
Oscar-winning documentary takes viewers on a journey through the jungles of Papua New Guinea, exploring natural and man-made obstacles that make it one of the more intriguing places in the world. Unfortunately, the film is rather plodding and is kept alive by its narration and a handful of memorable images.
