    A most frustrating documentary, this Georgian film is an excruciating watch. If you enjoy the works of Frederick Wiseman, you'll love this. There is very little in the way of dialogue. Bidzina Ivanishvili, Georgia's former prime minister, and current billionaire, is on a quest for trees for the construction of a park on his estate. Why should we care? This is a slog and boring and despite being in focus is one of the worst docs I've seen in recent memory. Why is this a film? So, a billionaire pays commoners for trees? Great idea, totally botched! Dystopian world! Final Score: 0.3/10

    So fucking utopian and dystopian at the same time
