So Wrong They're Right

Russ Forster and Dan Sutherland's funny, quirky 1995 documentary about the defunct eight-track-tape format should appeal to anyone interested in the fringes of pop culture. The filmmakers cross the country conducting interviews with eight-track lovers: one says these tapes sound better than CDs, another admits the sound is “bad” and the format “totally dumb”—which is why he likes it. The film, which includes footage of building demolitions, seems to see eight-track as a victim of our disposable age, but the format's junkiness makes it hard to see what the loss is. One collector displays Erik Estrada posters in her home, another also collects smiley-face objects, and many are afflicted with nostalgia for the 70s, which will likely seem weird to anyone who remembers the 60s.
