The Bulls of Suburbia
Before he traced the plight of New Orleans residents displaced by Hurricane Katrina in his 2007 documentary Desert Bayou, filmmaker Alex LeMay turned the camera on himself for this soul searching film about one man's quest to overcome his addiction to alcohol by becoming a bullfighter. LeMay had hit rock bottom, and in order to reclaim his life he was determined to accomplish something truly spectacular. Upon joining up with a former surfer-turned-bullfighting instructor, the wayward filmmaker began his arduous journey towards redemption. But along the way, LeMay would discover that there were others like him out there as well: A Korean boy seeking to escape his overbearing father, a Los Angeles-based rocker, and a soft-spoken geneticist were also seeking to carve out a new existence, and together this group began to turn their lives around. Later, while training in Spain, the director discovers that his father has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Now the decision must be made to call it quits and be with his family in their time of need, or forge ahead in hopes that his dying father will have a son that he can be truly proud of. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
