There’s something undeniably alluring about the rebel, the outcast. The one that doesn’t colour inside the lines, that lives life on his (or her) own terms – on the fringes, on the brink. Young forever. Of course, once you stop to actually examine the particulars of a life on the fringes – the frequent homelessness, hunger, disconnection and uncertainty – it might not seem so alluring after all.

Directed by Bradley Tangonan, Salt Cathedral’s “No Ordinary Man” takes us on a journey with 2 such characters, one of whom is beginning to tire of his way of life, and the relationship at its core. It’s a beautifully shot and poignant narrative, more than worthy of the wonderful song for which it exists. Dillon M. Banda
