I reviewed a documentary for Hollywood in Toto:
Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk is a documentary about golf caddies.
Wait! Keep reading. I swear, this movie is a lot of fun, even if you have as little interest in golf as someone like myself, who knows names like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, but doesn’t know a bogie from a double eagle.
It’s the hallmark of an objectively good film if it can entertain, teach, and make an uninterested observer care about the subject matter. “Loopers” does all three with style, pathos, and humor. Dryly narrated by Bill Murray, a former golf caddie himself, it’s a quality presentation that, through interviews, news footage, and even animation, shows the viewer how even the most skilled golfers from decades past to today wouldn’t enjoy half the success that they do without caddies. Caddies don’t just pull clubs: the best in the business become confidants, assistants, advisors, and even friends both on and off the course.
