    Impromptu family movie outing. After a slow and shaky start anticipated answers lead to a better film than I expected.

    ★★★★

    The treatment of the subjects is rather vignette via interview, but it does tie together into one unifying theme that could address the concerns of many of those Bergman inteviewed in his adopted home.  Having seen Bergman Island before, it’s great to see his perspective on the place and the people. It’s also fascinating to watch in hindsight knowing there’s a followup ten years later, making it somewhat like the Up series.

    Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric

    ★★★½

    It's a sprawling topic, which makes it hard to hold together. However, it was informative, and clarified some things I wondered about. It can communicate with the uninitiated, and as per usual makes a mockery of prejudice through science. However, some of the sociological insights, especially from other cultures, are what is most telling. Some of the subjects' stories are quite moving and communicate volumes.
