Revolutions Per Minute

Why Watch? A fascinating (if one-sided) look at a business that’s still making something that has technically been obsolete for four decades, this doc from Jim Larson gives a mouthpiece to record-makers in New York City. Some have succumbed to the present while others fight for a future, and every talking head is fascinating in a different way (although Johan Kugelberg from Boo-Hooray Gallery is by far the most entertaining). Plus, Larson approaches the story with the same plugged-in amplification of his Swans documentary The Seer.

There’s a fair amount of introspection and some competitive finger-pointing, but the real villain of the story comes in a small cup with sprinkles on top.  

What Will It Cost? About 15 minutes.
