Possessed: Documentary on Hoarding
POSSESSED from Martin Hampton on Vimeo.
An eloquent twenty-minute documentary on hoarders. Explores the lives of four people through their obsessive relationship with possessions (mostly grocery bags, used cotton balls, old porn and empty toothpaste tubes).
Depressing but fascinating. I partially depend on these people to accumulate inventory for me (which I eventually purchase from overwhelmed relatives). I also know that I would only have to be tuned a couple of degrees to go down this road myself.
