To Be Takei

    RBG (2018)

    Betsy West and Julie Cohen's documentary RBG is about the awesome Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. It traces her early achievements, fighting against a male-led system, advocating for gender equality in law, her relationship with her husband Martin Ginsburg — who seemed to compliment her perfectly — and her rise to stardom, being appointed to the court by President Clinton in 1993 and finally becoming a pop culture icon ("The Notorious RBG"). While it could have dug deeper, and been more personal, that seems unlikely given the all-business nature of Ms. Ginsberg. And, either way, it's still wonderfully entertaining and informative. It's heartening to learn of the friendship between the liberal-leaning RBG and the late, conservative-leaning justice Antonin Scalia; if only friendships like those were more common today. read more...

      Beastie Boys Story (2020)

      Following their bestselling and highly entertaining Beastie Boys Book, Michael Diamond (Mike D.) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock) took to the stage to do a live, slide-show version of their story. Director Spike Jonze (who made the band's great Sabotage music video in 1994) filmed what appears to be the last of these (although there are clips from other shows) and turned it into a feature-length documentary; Beastie Boys Story was meant to be shown in theaters, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it is debuting exclusively on Apple TV+. As my brother so aptly put it, it's like a TED Talk, with Mike and Adam sharing the stage, trading lines (there are jokes about their use of a teleprompter), while slides and videos play on the screen behind them. Jonzes's camera moves about, but never gets so busy that it distracts from the main event. Mistakes are allowed to creep in, and Jonze's voice can be heard apologizing from the back of the auditorium. As in the book, quite a lot of the stories are about singing the praises of the late, great Adam Yauch (MCA), who sadly died from cancer in 2012 at the age of 47. He was, according to his friends, a genius, innovator, considerate, curious, and a mystery. The best thing about Beastie Boys Story is the way the musicians are allowed to change and grow. The making of 1986's License to Ill is exciting and fresh, but later, they are allowed to regret some of their choices, and to learn from the experience. It's unlikely that non-Beastie fans will get much out of this, but fans will enjoy every moment of it. Apparently, Bill Hader provides the voice of the "crazy shit" title card that comes up. Watch to the very end for a few other little surprise appearances. read more...

        Western Stars (2019)

        At age 70, Bruce Springsteen forgoes his usual invigorating concert experience for this intimate, reflective live show; it's achingly beautiful, tender and personal, with strains of regret and hope. 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...

            For the Love of Spock (2016)

            Adam Nimoy directed this basic, but very loving tribute to his father Leonard Nimoy, daring to get a little more personal and a little less reverential than an average Star Trek fan might have done. For the Love of Spock is a loving look back at the career of actor Leonard Nimoy, and specifically the impact of his Star Trek character Mr. Spock. It uses all the typical documentary techniques, including many clips from movies and TV, photos, advertising materials, interviews, speaking engagements, and recordings, as well as new interviews; the younger Nimoy began interviewing his father for this film before he died, so there's plenty of fresh material. read more...
