My Life as a Zucchini

    [email protected] (2007)

    In the wonderful new documentary Young @ Heart, a group of seventy, eighty and ninety-year olds get together and perform songs by Sonic Youth, Coldplay, James Brown, the Clash, David Bowie, the Ramones and other contemporary bands. It sounds dubious and cutesy, but within minutes it reveals itself as the real thing and doubt gives way to unbridled enthusiasm. It's the type of film that sometimes becomes a word-of-mouth hit, although converts won't want to talk too much about what happens; as you may guess, some of the singers don't have long to live and one or two of them don't make it to the end of the film. Several characters become fascinating in their own right, but none more so than troupe director Bob Cilman, who does not pander to his singers because of their age. He's a tough, brutal drill sergeant, but he can open his heart when it matters most. The film's director Stephen Walker adds his own narration and occasionally enters into the film, which somehow makes it feel less like a documentary; Walker is just as caught up in the moment as we are. Walker's wife, the producer Sally George, directed several funny music videos featuring the group, but the film's highlight has to be a truly emotionally overwhelming concert at a prison. (As of today, the group has a following in Europe and has a CD available.) read more...

      Kedi (2017)

      This YouTube Red documentary is, like my son says, an hour-long cat video. But Kedi is also a love poem to the cats that roam the streets of Istanbul, connected to certain places or people, but remaining free spirits. A man tells the story of how the wide array of cats might have come to be there, arriving on ships, getting off to explore the land, and then missing the ships when they departed. Most of the people interviewed claim that the cats have made their lives better in some way; one man claims that a cat led him to a lost wallet full of money, and others assert that cats are like a midpoint between humans and God. Director Ceyda Torun uses impressive camera techniques to capture breathtaking overhead shots, as well as ground-level shots of what a cat's POV might look like. The cat footage is consistently adorable and entertaining; there must have been many hours of discarded footage to achieve this lovely 78-minute final product. Kedi is not rated, and is in Turkish with English subtitles, but is acceptable for all ages. If your child is old enough to read, or if parents don't mind reading subtitles out loud, this is a great family film as well as a life-affirming documentary. read more...
