    Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It

    ★★★½

    Warm, honest, heartfelt and joyous; good ratio of interviews and clips.

    Like any bistro tartiflette, Délicieux is made strictly to the recipe (in this case, of foodie period romantic movies), changing none of the accepted ingredients (and embracing cheese and ham), displaying little to no technical innovation, but guaranteed to leave one satisfied, smiling and a little guilty. You’ll know what you’re getting and you’ll like it!

    Tell Me Who I Am

    ★★½

    The story is deeply involving and the two subjects are likable and compelling. But the filmmaking is so deliberately drawn out to create suspense and tension that it feels exploitative, and the horror movie tropes used in the “atmosphere” footage are forced and on-the-nose. Too much “directing” and not enough reliance on the strength of the subject. Maybe an hour would have been better.

    Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness

    ★★★★★

    Among the series’ endless qualities, it is the astonishing vivacity of the characters that towers above all. Every one of these insanely idiosyncratic individuals feels like they’re being played by the world’s greatest character actor giving their career-best performance.
