    The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography

    ★★★★

    Hadn't even heard of this one but I'll watch anything by Errol Morris-and he didn't disappoint.
    Here one of the best documentary filmmakers of all time interviews Elsa Dorfman-a professional photographer who's taken portrait photos since she was 28 and used some of the best technology to do so.

    In the third act the…

    Stalker

    ★★★★½

    Bizarre and hypnotic film that feels like a fable plays like one of the more exciting works that Andrei Tarkovsky ever directed.
    At just shy of three hours in length the film seems to go by relatively quickly.
    The first half is rather exciting as the three men: the stalker, the writer, and the scientist; find their ways to sneak past guards and boundaries to get to the zone-a transformative and cinematic move that reaches as high as the moment…
