On Your Marks, Get Set ... Stare!

It's really hard to beat a good competition movie, whether it's a bad dance movie, a documentary about real-life competition, or a totally fake documentary. Thus, I present to you my latest online find: a mockumentary called Unflinching Triumph: The Phillip Rockhammer Story.

This hilariously deadpan film, which you can watch in its entirety on the web, explores the "inner world" of staring contests, including the nationwide championship held by the NASP, or National Association of Staredown Professionals. Phillip Rockhammer is the "professional staring athlete" whose journey is documented in the film. From his nail-biting showdowns with the reigning champion to his personal struggles, the camera captures it all. With tender seriousness, director J.R. McCord lightly mocks the competition documentary genre with this movie about, in Phillip Rockhammer's words, "the ultimate challenge of mind and body."
