The Back to the Future Documentary Looks Great
Wait a minute. Wait a minute, Doc. Ah… Are you telling me that you made a movie about a movie with a time machine made out of a DeLorean?
The town square of Petaluma, California, became an international landmark on July 4, 1985, the day Back to the Future took the American box office by storm. Audiences watched Doc Brown hook Marty McFly’s DeLorean to the clock on city hall and zap him back to the pastel modern eighties and away from the temptations of the rockabilly fifties (hair product, guitar god status, incest) and they were hooked. They’ve been returning to Petaluma ever since, sometimes in DeLorean caravans, to relive that glorious leap in time and to pay tribute to a truly awesome bit of popular culture. Now (in the present), documentarian Jason Aron has investigated how Back to the Future came to be and is looking to release his awesome looking film, entitled Back in Time, featuring interviews with Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and that dude from the diner. Where he’s going, he won’t need roads – just Kickstarter funds.
