SEATTLE—A string of independent bakeries in the Seattle area apparently provided enough material to warrant a 73-minute documentary titled Rise: The Resurgence Of The Artisanal Bakery, 27-year-old Netflix browser Cyrus Wall observed Sunday. "I guess someone decided this local baking scene was worth shooting and editing an entire movie about," said Wall, noting that his residence in Seattle and previous interest in a documentary about rustic cabinet making probably led to the film being recommended to him by Netflix. "Apparently, there's some kind of story to tell about these three traditional bakers and an upstart gluten-free baker, so I guess that's why this is a thing." After hovering over the play button for fifteen seconds, Wall opted instead to watch a documentary about cast-iron chair manufacturers in Boise, ID.
