Big River Man (2009)

A very strange documentary about an Ultramarathon swimmer from Slovenia who has previously swum the Mississippi and the Yangzi rivers. In this film, he takes on the Amazon. The editing is a bit psychedelic at times, but you have to give the filmmakers credit for creating something that's hard to turn away from.

It's baffling how an old, fat, drunkard is able to do such amazing feats—which is precisely why you should see this movie.

Rating: C+
