This is an exploration of Agnes a trandgender woman from the 1960s, who participated in gender studies. Its a mix of fact and fiction aiming to put Agnes and what she means to the trans community and the world into context and current . And I'm going to leave things there. Not because the film is bad, rather because the film doesn't speak to me. I know I am not its intended audience and as such there is nothing for me to say except, its very good.
A woman moves to Romania with her husband. She feels she's being watched. There is is a serial killer running through the city. Are they related? Doesn't anyone have curtains? Okay thriller never generates much suspense because we have been here before and it feels very staged. Yes the final couple of minutes have a couple of "oh crap" turns but its too little too late.
LUCY AND DESI
A love letter to Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez that charts the course of their lives. Full of clips and stories it will delight fans. And the ending will kick the hell out of fan and non-fan alike. I'm leaving it there because people with more love for the duo will have better things to say than I ever could.
This look at the objectivication of women in cinema is an illustrated lecture by the film's director Nina Menkes based upon her book Sex and Power: The Visual Language of Cinema. I am not going to say more than I saw it and if the subject interests you please see it. I'm leaving it there because my issues with the film will no doubt be misconstrude as issues with the subject matter and I am not going to get into any battles.
AM I OKAY
The relationship of two women is upset when one of the friends confesses that she likes women.This sets off repurcussions that play out in all their lives. This sweet comedy is enjoyable for what it is which is an over written comedy that never feels real. I enjoyed the hell out of it but ten minutes out I kinf of had it slip from my mind, hence this capsule
MEET ME IN
MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM
Awesome beyond the words I have in the middle of a festival look at the music scene in NYC around 2000. Its a stunner. See it (and read Liz Whittemore's review here)
