Video Trailer: The Parking Lot Movie
For every blockbuster that rolls onto the silver screen being the cash cows that they are, there are a number of smaller budget movies that offer much more than just robots, fast cars, and tons of explosions.
The Parking Lot Movie is one of them. The critically acclaimed documentary dives into the lives of parking lot attendants at a singular lot in Charlottesville, Virginia. The film follows a select group of parking lot attendants who work for their hard-earned cash while dealing with obnoxious car owners of every kind. It’s a thankless job by all accounts and one that leads to a flawed idea of what the American Dream is.
On the flip side, somebody still has to do it and these people are front and center in the action, taking whatever wage they could get just to make ends meet.
On a deeper level, this documentary will show you the socio-economic divide of this country where the rich get to enjoy the spoils of their success while the not-so get to park the former’s vehicles all while having to tolerate their brash and – at least for some – rude behavior.
So while movies like Transformers 3 and Fast Five will rake in all the cash at the box office, a small-time documentary like the Parking Lot Movie will boast of something that money can’t buy: the capacity to have a lasting effect on all our collective psyches.
