It Came From Kuchar

Director: Jennifer M. Kroot
Year Released: 2009
Rating: 2.0

Loving, but puffy documentary about kooky avant-garde maestros George and Mike Kuchar by one of George's former students that acts as a pleasant introduction to the work of the filmmakers and little more. Kroot brings together many of the Kuchar regulars to discuss working with the brothers and gives little clips from their best known pictures, but the real reason to watch is to see George run a 'class' at the San Francisco Art Institute, where he's been a fixture since the early seventies. All the students are able to participate in George's inclusive class projects, and his love and enthusiasm for the medium warrant absolute respect.
