The voice performers were all excellent for the most part but didn't have much to work with script wise; I couldn’t say whether this is due to bad writing or cultural/linguistic translations, but the version meant for American audiences was bewildering and bloated to say the least.
Perhaps one of the most divisive – if not the most divisive – issue in modern American politics is that of abortion. Interviewing advocates from both sides of the reproductive health debates, Birthright: A War Story looks at the history of abortion, recent and ongoing legislation, and the ways in which bureaucracy is wedging itself into the private lives of American citizens.
Poignant and incredibly funny, The Big Sick is a modern love story directed by Michael Showalter. Showalter, probably best known for his roles in the Wet Hot American Summer franchise, delivers us a solid follow-up to last year’s Hello, My Name is Doris, a similarly funny and endearing story.
Titan Books’ latest release for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman is a weighty, beautiful tome full of stunning artistry and delightful insights into the world of Princess Diana, the invincible enemy of injustice.
Writer/director/star Demetri Martin delivers in his directorial debut, Dean, a story about a man struggling to make sense of his world. Known to many as a contributor on The Daily Show and his show Important Things with Demetri Martin, the stand-up comedian is also a New York Times best-selling author, who undoubtedly pulls from his real-life experiences in this movie about an illustrator named Dean who is stuck in a rut.
The bizarre tale of a woman’s body found in a New Hampshire farmhouse and the search to understand what led to her death is an intriguing premise. Not a murder, not a suicide, the passing of Linda Bishop was a result of, remarkably, both her incredible optimism and then her crippling fear of the outside world, brought on by her delusions.
Offering unbelievable insight into the mind of Bishop in her final days, a pair of notebooks left in the farmhouse detail her thoughts as she examines the world through its windows. Directors Todd and Jedd Wider weave together shots of the home’s interior and exteriors with interviews with friends and family as they tell the story of Linda Bishop — her early life and her final days.
