Catfish
I hate to see people embarrassed even when they deserve it. When it was over I wound up disliking the deluded as much as the deluders.

Dear Zachary:A Letter to a Son About His Father
   N/A - 95mins - Documentary/Crime/Drama - N/A   The last time I cried in any movie was a few years back at the end of The Green Mile and that was a good 5 plus years ago and the time before that was probably The Lion King when I was 7 so it's fair to say that it's quite rare for me to get all emotional during a film. This film though had me blubbering like a schoolgirl …

INSIDE JOB
12A - 120mins - Documentary/Crime - 18th February 2011      The financial crisis of 2008 hit everyone hard of that there is no doubt and Inside Job seeks to understand the causes of this from how the crisis came about to who was responsible and what is being done to try and bring those people to justice. The overawing feeling whilst watching this movie is one of disgust, frustration …

Waiting For Superman
Waiting for Superman does an unflinching job of diagnosing and illustrating the problems of today's public school system. Citing statistics with great visualization, the focal points, nevertheless, are on about a half dozen candidates for local charter schools across the nation. Beginning and ending with the charter school lottery, the narrator aptly tells us our children's education should …

Waiting For Superman
Documentarian Davis Guggenheim is some kind of miracle worker. He's managed, twice now, to make documentaries that get lots of attention and accolades and even significantly affect the national debate on an important issue, but really, aren't that good. First, there was "An Incovenient Truth," which was an important subject, for sure, but as a film, was hardly more than Al Gore narrating …

Harlan County, USA
Harlan County, U.S.A. is one of the great documentaries. It shows us the miners' strike against the Brookside Mine of the Eastover Mine Company, part of the giant Duke Power corporate empire. It is an emotionally wrenching look at what happens to some poorly educated, unsophisticated, hard-working people when they decide to come together in a struggle for the kinds of rights and protections most …

Waiting For Superman
Waiting for Superman is an interesting and somber documentary for its portrayal of the state of education in the United States.  It is interesting, because it depicts the predicament of a number of real students from various backgrounds and areas of the country as their parents attempt to enroll them in a charter school.  It is somber, because it uses statistics and historical data to reveal …

INSIDE JOB
If you take Matt Damon's word for it (he's the narrator for the vastly overrated INSIDE JOB), then you'd quite possibly find your personal income regulated.  That's right: the actor who makes about $10 million dollars per picture (plus some back-end residual income, no doubt) may think you're making too much money, and he'd rather have the government step in to make sure …

INSIDE JOB
It is seldom that Wall Street (if ever) provided us with such an intricate and out of the world financial engineering that movies and after movies could now be made to commensurate the 2008 financial catastrophe. No one fully understood the plots behind the many stories and the realities that all the very top people had been saying. What we all in the world understand is that we have become poorer …

Exit Through the Gift Shop
Great documentary! Compelling and fascinating all the way through -- VERY thought provoking on rich topics, ranging from what art really is or isn't to opportunists and certain societal / cultural tendencies to be more conducive to those opportunists. Love how the story was told - not as you'd anticipate - and LOVED the first hand insight from the prolific Bansky and Shepard Fairey -- so cool …

Catfish
*** out of ****     "Catfish" is the kind of movie that would have done even better if it hadn't been advertised so poorly. The trailers make the thing out to be some sort of thriller. What we get when we actually watch the thing is a drama; but luckily, it's a good one with a heart. I do admire "Catfish" for its entertaining qualities; and then again, there are moments where the …

It's a documentary format kind of film and you'd have to be very interested in the 2008 financial meltdown to enjoy this film. Or, if you are working or had worked in the financial industry, then this will definitely interest you. The film may have addressed what went wrong, but it has not quite demonstrate how the financial world has changed since then. Those working for Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, …

“The internet is always lying to you.”   - personal advice to me from Mike (Cruft), whom I initially met online in 2003.      When Catfish started stirring the waters (tee hee) of art house theaters here in Los Angeles I did not know what it was about. After I caught wind from a tweet praising it, I inquired – she, the Tweeter, said she couldn’t …

   I tend to avoid constant streams of news because the flow of bad and dark overwhelms me and makes me feel hopeless. I can't watch the endless commentary on why people do some of the hideous things that they do, or how our world is becoming more and more hostile. So the fact that I generally love documentaries surprises e.      Food Inc was one I put off for a very …

***1/2 out of ****      "Exit Through the Gift Shop" is a truly fascinating Documentary. Given the subject matter, it could have easily wasted its time trying to change our minds about Graffiti Art. Instead, "Exit Through the Gift Shop" wants us to merely watch a man record art in the making. And we're even treated to his own rise to fame. Yes, they have …
