Grass Roots


Sweetgrass: Last Ride of the American Cowboy is a documentary with no narrator about some sheep herders on range land that is no longer range land. If you enter Yellowstone from the North, you drive through this beautiful section of Southern Montana and Northern Wyoming where Sweetgrass is filmed, and it's totally unforgettable. The last time I did that was on May 29, 2007 – here's a picture:

Oh, The West. I wish I could quit you.

Read a review of Sweetgrass at the New York Times. Manohla Dargis calls it "the first essential movie of this young year." I am dying for a fucking roadtrip.
