    The Mirror Has Two Faces

    ★★★★★

    Objectively I feel like this is a 3 to 4 star movie, but I really liked it!!

    This was the first Barbra Streisand anything I have ever seen and I get all the love and admiration now!

  • Hillbilly Elegy

    ★★★★★

    What an emotional charge!! I was not ready for this!!

    A very raw and real family story, portraying both the worst and best of human relations. Easily one of the best movies I have ever watched.
    Hats off for every single person involved, but specially for the actors and the makeup and hairstyling crew. Marvelous job!!

    I really don't get why this movie is being so snubbed 🤷

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This movie delivers both the soul of live theater and the mastery of cinema.
    It's a masterpiece!

    This was not at all what I expected. I was expecting a regular biopic style, but instead we are given the chance to get to know Ma (near the end of her career) during one day and one day only.
    The whole plot is set in pretty much just one place, the recording studio, whose atmosphere becomes denser and denser as the movie…

    Harsh, raw, touching, insightful and hopeful.
