Riverwest Film & Video (2018) REVIEW – An Unconventional Local Institution Gets The Doc Treatment
By Andrea Thompson
Full disclosure: I once worked at Riverwest Radio, the station run out of the store of the film’s title, “Riverwest Film & Video.” So I couldn’t possibly review this documentary with something even close to unbiased opinion.
There is no real plot to speak of in “Riverwest Film & Video,” with the film consisting of a series of vignettes that involve people at the store going about the business of running it, supporting it, or just talking to the camera itself. It certainly suits the subject, a place much loved by locals, but by rights shouldn’t exist. True, Riverwest Film & Video has a variety of film equipment to rent, but it also still offers DVDs to rent, which can’t be a viable business model.
