This thoughtful, informative and entertaining elegy examines the myriad aspects of society that were altered by the creation of videotape. From its poor picture quality, ropey pan-and-scan and glitches marking the best parts through to its inventive marketing and sheer breadth of titles available, Josh Johnson’s documentary celebrates not just the fan-boy collectors but also the product that changed the face of movie culture and the film business. Genre celebrities like Frank Henenlotter, Charles Band and Roy Frumkes discuss how VHS changed the ability to make and distribute films in an anecdotally enlightening and warmly nostalgic way..
