Antarctica: A Year on Ice (2014)

In Antarctica, there exist several research stations where scientists, engineers, technicians, and other experts live and work during the summer months, when the sun can be seen in the sky, and during one period, never completely sets. But in the winter months, a handful of brave souls stay behind to endure storms, isolation, disorientation, and a brutal number of weeks when the sun cannot be seen at all. Filmmaker Anthony Powell keeps his cameras rolling in the bitter cold, picking up incredible time-lapse images, interviews with workers, and moments of jubilance, moments of heartbreak, and moments of truly astounding confrontations between man and nature at her most intense. read more...

NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage (2014)

Jeremy Whelehan's documentary NOW: In the Wings on a World Stage tells the story of the world tour of Sam Mendes' production of Richard III, starring Kevin Spacey. It looks like it would have been a hell of a show in real life, but the documentary leaves me with several troubling reactions. read more...

    Nas: Time Is Illmatic (2014)

    I'm not sure how well-known or well-received Nas' 1994 album Illmatic is in general; on the great music ranking site Acclaimed Music.net, it currently clocks in as the 211th greatest album of all time. which seems a bit low. In hip-hop circles, it has no peer. It's incomparable. Some have even compared it to the Bible. It's certainly worthy of its own documentary, which marks the occasion of its 20th anniversary. read more...

      Haute Cuisine (2013)

      Sadly, food movies have recently taken on the unfortunate nickname of "food porn." I guess there's a correlation. Viewers watch something with carnal desire, but only through the pleasures of sight and sound... smell, touch, and taste are denied. But "porn" is often devoid of romance and poetry, while food movies delve headfirst into these things. And so I reject the term "food porn" and will stick to the simple "food movies." read more...

        City of Gold (2016)

        Laura Gabbert's City of Gold is a documentary about the Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold, but it's really a documentary about journalism and eating, and truly appreciating both words and food. And, if I may struggle over a word for a moment, it's delectable. Working for the Los Angeles Times, Jonathan Gold limits his culinary explorations to that city, but is actually unlimited, given the large number of cultures and dishes available there. Truly curious, Gold researches and dines several times before even setting fingers to keyboard. He's unassuming, but still well-known among the food world, he's slightly feared -- we see one restauranteur freaking out when Gold arrives unannounced -- but also loved; one interviewee explains that Gold is a most empathetic critic, more interested in understanding and sharing than he is in writing well-worded pans. Gold himself is a humble subject, perhaps not very dynamic, but still kind of lovable. He's not exactly tubby, but parts of him are: his fingers and neck. He has long, thinning gray hair and a mustache, and wears suspenders that literally seem to keep up his pants (they're not a fashion statement). He's seen giving a graduation speech and a reading in a bookstore, and he appears fairly uncomfortable at both. He claims to be lazy and easily distracted, forever late on reviews and constantly hounded by exasperated editors. But I see him as more curious than lazy. He never stops working; he just finds more things to absorb, either through his eyes, or his taste buds. Some celebrity chefs are interviewed (including Roy Choi, who previously made a movie mark as the creative consultant for Jon Favreau's wonderful Chef), and there's quite a bit of drool-worthy food photography, but director Gabbert lets Gold be his own subject. read more...
