Despite a few plot elements that aren't entirely believable, this is a most powerful drama, led by superb performances from the fine Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts and the acclaimed veteran actor Bruce Dern. The film also has a very poignant finale which certainly enhances its effect. Overall, a strong feature debut from director and co-writer Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre.
This lively and engaging documentary, directed by Rachel Shuman, takes place in October 2008, as the world was reeling from the Great Recession and America was on the cusp of the Barack Obama and John McCain Presidential Election. Just 56 mins. in length, WFMU radio host Clay Pigeon takes to the streets of NYC
to interview New Yorkers about their lives and current events, as well as an underlying theme of the doc, that of the gentrification of the city. The interviews are brief, well edited, and very engaging. There's also colorful and haunting scenes of NYC parades, parks, and ceremonies where the cinematography is spectacular. Overall, I can highly recommend this film which I found at my local library.
The power of this documentary on the acclaimed photographer Garry Winogrand is in the incredibly striking and remarkable photos that are presented here. Known as a "street photographer", Winogrand passed away in 1984 at the age of 56. He left thousands of rolls of undeveloped film, and posthumously there have been a number of exhibitions displaying his work. The film, directed by Sasha Waters Freyer, follows pretty much the standard doc form with some personal history of Winogrand, archival clips, and interviews with his contemporaries, family, and friends. But those amazing photos captured by Winogard's most talented eye left me wanting to know the backstory on nearly every one of them. To note: no subtitles available except when Winogrand was giving a lecture or being interviewed, but I was able to use the closed caption option on my remote to obtain them.
Easy to watch documentary on the life and career of world renowned Brazilian ballet dancer Marcelo Gomes. We see, via vintage film clips, his incredible dance talent as a boy in Brazil, his eventual travel, as a 13-year-old, for further training to America, and later to other schools, eventually signing with the American Ballet Theater, where he remained for 20 years.
Also, Gomes is shown performing on stage around the world and his philosophy, when he is in partnership with a ballerina, of allowing her to shine, is highlighted in the film. Gomes' also candidly discusses how his body is beginning to break down and the inevitability of eventual retirement. Finally, he talks about coming out as gay and the subsequent effects of this on himself and his family.
To note: there were no subtitles available when English is spoken, but I was able to access them through the closed caption option on my remote. When other languages are spoken, which is quite often, there are subtitles but they are quite small.
