Know Your Mushrooms

Posted by Amy Baranski

The documentary, Know Your Mushrooms, by Ron Mann would better be called Gary Lincoff and Larry Evans Excellent Adventures. The story follows them to the Telluride Mushroom Fest (and beyond), and largely focuses on the cultural perceptions of mushrooms, versus really getting to (cough) KNOW YOUR MUSHROOMS. I would have much preferred a more indepth account of Evans and Lincoff's myco-knowledge.

If you're a die-hard mycophile, or just kinda curious, you can check out the flick on Hulu. I give it two thumbs sideways.
