    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...

    Jack & Yaya (2020)

    Arriving just in time for Pride Month, Jennifer Bagley's documentary Jack & Yaya tells the lovely, down-to-earth story of two next-door neighbors who met as toddlers through the back yard fence.

    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...

    [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...

    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...
