Documentary Film Of The Day - Pucker Up...

Like I said in my post about the movie "Wordplay", this is the kind of doc I like. Where "Wordplay" was about people who are awesome at crossword puzzles, "Pucker Up" is about people who excel at whistling. It is not some hog-calling contest or who can sound most like a bird. These people are seriously good. They compete in different genres, like classical or pop. They are from all walks of life. One works for the Carlyle Group (ugh), one is a hippie from Key West. Another is a social worker from the Netherlands. There is also a guy who actually makes a living as a whistler. I won't give away who wins the competition. I saw this on the Sundance Channel, but I noticed that Netflix carries it. More HERE.

I never even heard of this movie. And whistling and and crossword puzzles are two of my favorite hobbies.

Huh. And here I've been watching the doc The Lifestyle: Swinging In America. I gotta check this one out!

(seriously, I do: I was at work at Bullseye a few months ago, whistling as I restocked the shelves and someone commented to me, "that's nice. You never HEAR anyone whistle anymore..."

Right now Lauren Bacall and the ghost of Bogart are laughing it up.
