The Cats of Mirikitani (2006)



Wow. I really didn't expect this documentary about a homeless artist living in New York to completely blow me away. But it did. I don't want to say too much about it, because the film is just one nice surprise after another. But I'll tell you that it made me wonder how many other lost souls out there could have their lives completely restored with a little help from a friend.

Have you seen Dark Days? I'm curious to see what you think of that one...

This reminded me a lot of Dark Days, especially when Jimmy gets his own apartment after living on the streets for so long.
