Bama Rush documentary

Check it out. The director is a completely bald woman (alopecia) who puts herself into the film and murmurs about her past with wigs. One of the girls is a biracial beauty who wants to be a coroner. Her blond friend got thrown out of the sororities from wearing the wrong sticker and is trying to get back in. Another girl is an 18 year old “pageant queen” from rural Illinois who is has been dreaming of attending the University of Alabama for years. And then there are a couple of “sorority consultants.” They are grown women paid by the girls to consult on the entire sorority rush process. They instruct them never to talk about the “5 B’s.” One of the B’s is Biden.

The film has Christopher Guest energy with a bit of Drop Dead Gorgeous thrown in.

I think this will make me hate people even more than I already do.

So I’ll probably watch.

It lowkey kills me not knowing what the other four are.

Oh this is perfect! I'm already watching DCC making the team, this seems pretty similar.

The other B's were bucks (anything related to finances), boys, and... shit I can't remember the other two. I was unclear what any of them talk about if they avoid the 5 B's.

Clothes and makeup I guess?

I just googled - other two are booze and beliefs (aka religion).

American culture is so very antiquated.

Watching now.

Where do these people come from? I had no idea there were people this clueless in the world.

I say this as someone who grew up in rural Georgia.

American culture shaped the entire world you fuckwit.

That being said, this Alabama shit is something else. Seems like such a waste of time and energy.

I can watch stuff like that. I used to get a kick out of seeing white trash sitting in their own filth like Honey Boo Boo. But now it just bums me that our country is filled with so many idiots.

I can't watch stuff like that, I meant.

I haven't watched yet. For anyone in the know, are they focusing on the top tier houses or are they second and third tier slag houses?

The trailer makes southern Greek life scarier and creepier than it already is.

I watched it. It was poorly done overall. MTV used to make better documentaries than this one. And the alopecia suffering director inserting herself in the show would have been fine, except she was so vain and so self-centered that it was cringe-worthy. The rushes or pledges or whatever? Boring. You couldn’t love or hate any of them because they were so dull.

This had potential and it was wasted.

R15 is right. It could have been much better, much sharper.

I would say I can’t believe “sorority girls” still exist. But, there seems to be a new wave of women who really revel in being stay-at-home-moms. I would guess there’s a lot of overlap with those two groups.

by Anonymousreply 17May 27, 2023 9:59 PM

When the bald director dressed up in a disguise (blond wig and floral dress), I couldn’t believe what I was watching.

You have a bunch of 18 year old girls desperately trying to rush these crazy sororities and you think the audience wants to see you and your alopecia?

Utter nonsense.

Just finished watching. It's a mess, but not even a guilty pleasure mess. There's no premise, either stated or presented. Everyone from the director to the subjects are vapid and shallow. The director weirdly inserts themselves into the documentary. The whole thing is a waste of time.

The whole thing wasn’t going to fly because Greek life is notoriously secretive and protective. Remember when MTV had that show “Sorority Life” and “Fraternity Life”? That ended because whoever the governing body was at the time let it be known that anyone who participated in the show would lose their charter.

They were mostly terrible on that show so no wonder they wouldn’t want to be exposed to the public. I thought the girls at that Jewish fraternity were nice (but not most of the pledges), but the rest were just awful. That fraternity they showed accepted all their pledges except one. The only black kid in the bunch who was also the nicest kid out of all of them. It was pretty heartbreaking watching people who he thought were his friends turn their back on him once he didn’t get in and it was obvious he didn’t get in because he was black. Blessing in disguise. It would have been worse if he had spent his college years trying to be accepted by such jerks.

They should have just skipped this nonsense and done a full documentary on "the machine" which was by far the most intriguing thing about it.

I personally think they tapped (and paid) that Mikayla girl to be on it knowing full well she wouldn't go through rush. . She couldn't have seemed any less interested in the whole process.
