DVD of the Week: Sweetgrass

Sweetgrass: This unadorned documentary tells the story of the two (heterosexual) cowboys who drove thousands of sheep on the last sheep drive in Montana’s Beartooth Mountains.  Because it is not dressed up with narration or music, the audience is left with the story, the people, their quest, the sheep and the landscape – and that’s more than enough.

If you’re life is too frenetic, pop this movie on and take a contemplative 101 minute respite.

It’s also available on Netflix streaming.

It’s on my list of Best Movies of 2010 – So Far.
