LONG SHOT (Telluride Film Festival Telluride Colorado USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Long Shot,
a terrific documentary, shows how a man wrongfully accused of murder becomes cleared of that accusation due to being caught on film by the Larry David film crew. Watch for the eerie pauses that Larry David makes, the raising of the arms, the significant timing of events as he climbs the Dodger Stadium steps, almost, in retrospect, as if knowing this filming sequence has special significance.

Juan Catalan clears himself of murder charges through a review of stored film from Larry David’s show, Curb Your Enthusiasm. David’s show films in Dodger Stadium at the date and time when Catalan becomes accused of murder. The show’s dated and timed film footage shows Catalan in his stadium seat sitting next to his daughter at the date and time he supposedly is murdering a young woman.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The film deserves its place in a stranger than fiction tale. Absolutely do not miss this movie. In particular, watch how purposefully the accused man is caught and filmed in his seat with his daughter at the baseball game. Interesting phenomena.
