Biography, Documentary
Plenty of Chicagoans (and tourists as well) have seen local character Vincent P. Falk modeling his brightly colored suits on the downtown bridges that overlook the Chicago River and in the waving-crowd shots of TV news programs. This 2009 documentary by Jennifer Burns reveals Falk to be a bland, vision-impaired fellow who was born in 1949, grew up in orphanages until he was eight, embraced his homosexuality in the 70s, and works as a computer programmer for Cook County, helping to calculate and distribute property tax bills. His story would have made a good short, but stretched to 96 minutes it's deadly dull, padded out with the vague musings of local media personalities and staffers from the sightseeing boat tours. Falk comes off as a man desperate for attention, and Burns as a woman desperate to give it to him.
