There's a lot to process after watching 'The Great Hack', chronicling the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook data mining. So much, it may require a second viewing to soak it all in. It's scary, but let's be honest if you didn't know this was happening in some form, you're beyond naive. I feel like this documentary scratches the surface. It's an underbelly we don't want to know about. If you're a conspiracy theorist you're going to have information overload. Final Score: 7.7/10
A couple hints: 1) Watch this high; It has to make more sense if you're stoned (i wasn't) 2) Don't watch or read any reviews. You're going to want to be entertained by the insanity of it all.
There are certain films that are so out there critics think it's art and they don't want to be left behind or viewed as uncool. This is one of those.
'The Perfection' has a constant need to explain itself. It's annoying for what is trying to be something on another level. This movie should have been named 'The Mediocre'. Final Score: 3.8/10
Mary Elizabeth Winstead is fantastic in a starring roll in Eva Vives' directorial debut. It's deep, it's uncomfortable and perhaps a little over the top, but it's executed well. Guys are going to cringe, women may feel empowered. No matter your gender you should watch, listen to understand and take away some very important truths. I'm not in love (more in admiration) with the film, but I'm in love with the concept and Vives ability to mix humor in a topic that is obscene. Life is about surviving and so is this film. Final Score: 7.2/10
One of the best documentaries of 2018, 'Free Solo' has one of the best climaxes for any movie. It also has a captivating subject, Alex Honnold, to go along with the subject matter, scaling mountains with nothing but your hands and feet. It's best if you go in not knowing anything about it, but even if you do the filmmakers make a beautiful film. It's a little slow at times and frankly I wanted to know about how Honnald ticks. The surface is scratched in this regard, but when just about everyone who has a hobby/job that Honnald does has died, why would he want to do this. Why would his girlfriend want to be a part of this. We know he has money, but is there another reason?
Overall, the tension makes this a documentary worth watching. Final Score: 8.3/10
It's hard to imagine we've improved our standing around the world since the change in the presidency, and it feels like decades ago that Obama was in office, but 'The Final Year' takes a look at the (at the time) lame duck President and a few members of his cabinet. There's nothing earth shattering here nor is there any real controversy, but it is nonetheless interesting. Final Score:7.1/10
