    Bud Greenspan Presents Vancouver 2010: Stories of Olympic Glory

    ★★★★

    This is up there with the best of the Greenspan films, and a good one to go out on (may he RIP). There were some exciting events, but the most notable were Petra Majdic and the gold medal hockey game, the latter of which I watched live. Greenspan captured the drama with some perspective thanks to Miller and Luongo.

    ★★★

    Average filmmaking that gives a lot of attention to the opening ceremonies and less so to the actual events, and this was a pretty exciting Olympics. But those opening ceremonies were so breathtaking that I can’t complain.

    ★★★★★

    No idea how many times I've seen this. 6? 10? But not for awhile, and it blew me away all over again. I wish it was twice as long.

    The Decameron

    ★★★½

    Evidence that 1970s Italians prioritized sex over dentistry.
