A gorgeously directed and beautifully written film about an immigrant Nanny finding the power to take back her life. The drive of the movie is watching Aisha, the main character trying to bring her son to America from Senegal. We watch as her job slowly takes up her entire life but she never, EVER, loses sight of her mission. It’s such a beautiful story because it’s so often that immigrant mothers move to America to live the “American Dream”, working…
There’s a lingering effect happening here that I’m calling “After After Yang.” Kogonada opened a door to some of my most repressed fears in a way that has left me feeling curious, patient, and in this moment, a little less afraid.
This is a stellar tell-most study. It would be nice if the reporting and editing here got some awards love.
Naturally the recollections and footage alike are disquieting and sometimes harrowing. But the arc of the slow, mostly fruitless attempts at progress and real rehabilitation is so gripping that this is a quite easy watch for me.
There's material for more hours, I'm sure, but the firm two hours makes it leave packing a punch given what's contained in the…
Attica is a gut wrenching examination of the uprising at Attica Prison and the massacre committed by law enforcement. It only happened fifty years ago.
I don’t normally give trigger warnings but the last half hour of this is horrific. It’s hell on earth. It reminded me of footage I’ve seen from the concentration camps from World War II. Yet this happened here in the supposed land of the free. It didn’t happen during a war or in formerly confederate…
This documentary is an absolute delight. Her story is already pretty interesting and they do a great job of covering most of the important details in what felt like a very comprehensive package (I knew very little about Julia going into this). It was also great (and extremely hunger-inducing) how they intercut modern footage using extreme closeups of delicious looking food from her recipes in slow motion with the older footage.
The real surprise here was how unexpectedly funny Julia…

Did not expect one of the most moving scenes of 2021 to be Julia Child taking a pan off its hanger
I loved Free Solo so much it basically reinvigorated my interest in documentaries, so it's no surprise that I loved The Rescue, in which directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin deliver 114 minutes of PURE STRESS as they chronicle the Thai cave rescue from 2018. Unlike Free Solo and Meru, however, they weren't shooting the action as it occurred, but a treasure trove of footage from inside the cave combined with skillfully integrated reenactments—by the real-life participants—presumably shot by…
