Flashback Friday-Krippendorf’s Tribe (1998)

Family and money are peculiar things. We do things for both that in the moment seem wise, but in the long run are far from wise.

In the 1998 film Krippendorf’s Tribe, James Krippendorf (Richard Dreyfuss) is an anthropologist who has misused university funds. Instead of discovering and recording the last unknown tribe of New Guinea, he comes home empty-handed. Instead of fessing up, Krippendorf comes up with the most unusual of scams: enlisting his children to pretend to be the undiscovered tribe of Shelmikedmu.

I find the premise of this film to be very interesting. Though I am not sure what genre besides comedy that it belongs to, it is certainly an entertaining film.

I recommend it.
