This lovely, big-hearted documentary does a remarkable job of showing people with disabilities as absolutely, utterly human, as well as telling a compelling story of the hard work of making a movie. read more...

Varda by Agnès (2019)

The world lost filmmaker Agnes Varda in March of 2019, and it was one of those deaths that affect film fans deeply. Fans of her films might have felt like they knew her, and those of us lucky enough to have interviewed her can attest that, yes, you did. She had an open-hearted curiosity about the world, and a genuine honesty about how she might fit into it. She was a pint-sized force of nature, formidable and endearing, marching to work in her trademark bowl-shaped hairdo, unafraid to try just about anything artistic, in an attempt to see and know people more clearly. The documentary Varda by Agnès is her official final work, a straightforward and yet endlessly fascinating look at her career. She simply sits on a stage, age 90, in front of a handful of students and shows clips of her work, but her own readings of the things she has done show a desire to continue learning and exploring. It's both a perfect coda to her career, as well as a perfect starting place for newcomers. See it, and then go and check out her masterpieces, such as: Cleo from 5 to 7, Vagabond, The Gleaners & I, The Beaches of Agnes, and Faces Places. read more...

    Goodbye Solo (2009)

    Goodbye Solo is a film light in plot but generous in spirit. It tells one of those old, familiar Hollywood yarns about the eccentric oddball who takes an uptight outcast under his or her wing and tries to open him or her up. Then they both learn happy lessons about life in balance. Hollywood generally bungles this formula by making the characters too extreme, with no resemblance to life, but here director Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, Chop Shop) makes no such mistake. read more...

    Whisper of the Heart (1995)

    This beautiful anime from Studio Ghibli has baffled the Disney marketing team, which is presenting it as a supernatural thriller of some sort, in which a girl gets whisked off by a talking cat. The actual film is quite a bit more enchanting; I kept waiting for the thrill-a-minute stuff to kick in and spoil the mood but, thankfully, it never does. read more...
