    Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk (2017)

    Approaching a whopping three hours, Corbett Redford's Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk is more like an encyclopedia than a documentary. Moving, more or less in chronological order, it begins (after the Ramones, of course) with the earliest Bay Area punk rock bands, including the Dead Kennedys, The Avengers, Flipper, and Fang. (It includes way more information about the hilarious Berkeley band Fang than I've ever been able to dig up.) It then tracks the younger punks as they looked for outlets. read more...

      White Riot (2020)

      Rubika Shah's documentary White Riot tells the story of the Rock Against Racism movement that, in the late 1970s, specifically challenged the racist National Front movement (whose agenda was to "send 'em all back to where they came from"... you can't make this junk up). The movement started as a magazine, Temporary Hoarding, interviewing punk bands like X-Ray Spex. The movement spread, in true D.I.Y. fashion, and led to a huge show, performed by a combination of punk and reggae bands like The Clash, Gang of Four, Steel Pulse, and headlined by the organization's favorite the Tom Robinson Band (known today for the song "2-4-6-8 Motorway"). Astonishingly, the movement was started after Eric Clapton expressed his support for the racists, prompting co-founder Red Saunders to write a letter that was published. (Nice goin', Eric.) Unlike so many other movies about punk rock, White Riot actually looks punk rock, with graphics that appear borrowed or homemade. The film plays some key songs from its notable bands, but it's a real shame that more footage from the concert itself existed. read more...

        Paris Is Burning (1991)

        Shot on 16mm, Jennie Livingston's dazzlingly entertaining 1991 documentary captures a portion of Harlem's "drag balls" for outsiders to savor. Drag queens apparently beg, borrow or steal anything they can to dress up and walk in these balls, in the hopes of winning a prize or becoming a star for a night. Many of them privately address the camera and talk about their need for escape and their dreams of real-life stardom. Most drag queens belong to a "house," adopting a fictitious last name, such as "Xtravaganza" or "Ninja," but living with others who care about them. Livingston takes a special interest in the blonde, petit Venus Xtravaganza, who unfortunately dies before the movie finishes shooting. Though Paris Is Burning received overwhelming critical acclaim and enjoyed a relatively successful theatrical run, it was denied an Oscar nomination for Best Documentary. read more...

        Borg vs McEnroe (2018)

        While this sports movie skimps on details and seems a bit rushed in places, it nevertheless nicely balances its handling of two tennis champs, aided in no small part by the terrific lead performances. read more...
