Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2012)

We're always on the lookout for the next great food movie, and since Hollywood grows ever more wary of movies that take their time and concentrate on the process of making something, it only makes sense that the newest food movies are documentaries. read more...

Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint (2020)

This documentary, which is available at home courtesy of Kino Now, tells the story of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint (1862-1944), who may have been the first abstract painter in history, but whose works never (or rarely) saw exhibition. Remarkably, her style seems to have evolved not from a need to turn a current artistic trend on its side, but through her ravenous study of everything that makes up our world, including science, nature, gender, mathematics, and just about everything else. She realized that the things we can actually see are only a small part of what actually exists, and she tried to visualize all of that, everything, through her paintings. This suggests some kind of incredible genius, though apparently not much of Hilma's private life is known outside of the fact that she had a friend who may also have been her benefactor, and that she purchased a lot of eggs (with which she likely painted). read more...

    Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2011)

    In 1994, climbers in Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc in Southern France discovered a cave filled with rich cave drawings. Experts quickly determined that the drawings dated back some 32,000 and were the oldest such drawings in the world today. The enormous importance of the find was immediately apparent and the cave was sealed off to everyone but experts. However, the acclaimed director Werner Herzog was given unprecedented access to film inside. Using 3D for the first time, Herzog's meticulous, curious eye lovingly records the drawings and also attempts to capture the myriad of thoughts and feelings they inspire. read more...

    Wadjda (2013)

    Haifaa Al-Mansour is the first female filmmaker in Saudi Arabia, and Wadjda is the first feature film directed by a woman in Saudi Arabia. Apparently, she was forced to do most of her work via monitors and walkie-talkies from the inside of a van, since men and women are not allowed to be seen working together. read more...

      California Typewriter (2017)

      When the documentary California Typewriter was over, I went to my closet and dug out my grandfather's old manual typewriter, stuck in its box for the past several years. I was struck by a new appreciation for this beautiful old Underwood, and now it sits on my desk, ready for notes or stories, or what have you. I'm not sure anyone can ask much more from a documentary, to leave the film and be moved to immediately act upon what you've seen. I do wish the film had gone a little farther in its structure, been a little bit more playful, rather than a bunch of fairly typical interviews and "B" roll, but otherwise, I love it. read more...
