People! If you’ve ever seen one of these:
…and wondered what it is, you need to see Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles. It’s streaming on Netflix, and it’s popped up in my queue before, only to have me ignore it because I thought it had something to do with, you know, resurrecting the dead.
But no! It’s actually about this amazing outsider art that I grew up seeing all over the place in NYC, Philly, DC, and so forth. And about the prophetic theories of the person who made all of them, and the super cute punk rock guy who spends years tracking him down. (Bonus: super cute punk rock guy has lots of tattoos and used to live in a Philly squat!! LOVE!)
Anyway, it’s seriously fascinating. Ten thumbs up!
