From the director of American Movie (1999), Home Movie is a quirky documentary about five unique homes and their eccentric but genuinely enthusiastic owners. Included in Smith’s film is a laid back Louisiana gator wrangler who lives on a houseboat; a former Japanese television star who lives in treehouse in Hawaii; a hypnotist who has constructed a “futuristic” automated home; a peace-loving family who live in a converted missile silo; and a childless couple who have remodeled their home for their collection of cats (Klaus MIng March 2016).
