Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Car parks and movies are usually combined with a drug deal, or some kind of tip off from a shadowy character. This documentry deviates far from that stereotype.

It lets the viewer delve in to the lives of current and former parking lot attendants at The Corner Parking Lot in Charlottesville, Virginia. It's a bunch of blokes sharing tales, varying from their own self-discovery to venting their frustration about the dicks who drive their father's $50,000 4x4, but won't pay a $2 fee to park. The description doesn't really leave much to the imagination, but trust me: it's brilliant.

If you have ever worked in a retail job, or some kind of public service, you'll relate to these characters. You'll be facepalming, laughing, and furthering your already low opinion of society and drunken college kids. The employees talk about the close bond developed between car park and attendant, and explain how working there has at times left them feeling like some kind of god - usually this means it is time to move on. Because as the Corner Parking Lot owner Chris points out on a number of occasions, it is just a parking lot.


An awesome insight in to the battle against humanity.
