Peeling back a corner of the universe to glimpse the utter chaos that lies behind.

God Will Hand Us the Sword of Justice
This is one of the best movies about nothing in particular that I have ever seen.
The Parking Lot Movie is a documentary about a bunch of guys who work at the Corner Parking Lot (aka "The CPL") in Charlottesville, VA. Like all parking lot attendants, these guys are over-educated, thoughtful, insightful and misunderstood. The movie documents their struggles and torments against boredom, entitled college kids and, sometimes, each other. Spoiler alert - one of them ends up as the bass-man with Yo La Tengo.
