"this gal's got a weight problem, she knows it."

fashion tips from frederick wiseman's documentary high school. ouch.

i saw titicut follies for a course in college and have wondered after frederick wiseman ever since. his name is noticeably absent from cinefile's documentary section (!?), but then last night, praise jesus, i found this clip on youtube and then found his dvds available for purchase on this site. oh dear, i want to see them all.

there is something about this sort of filmmaking that i really, really love.
what is that thing?

my humblest thanks to kwr212 for making this clip available.
