The Lure

A documentary about the treasure seekers scouring the Rockies for Forrest Finn’s hidden million-dollar treasure. There’s a computer programmer-turned-cowboy, a retired cop, a guy getting chemo, all tramping over the wilderness. The film kinda examines what each of them is looking for and how this treasure hunt provides them with an opportunity to find it. As for Forrest Finn who hid the treasure, he seems to view this as his way of becoming part of America, by becoming part of American legend, part of the story of its landscape and folktale. Good movie, lovely feeling and mood.
