KING OF KONG: A FISTFULL OF QUARTERS
If you haven't seen this, stop everything you are doing and turn on Netflix now. I don't care if you don't like video games, that has barely any concern where the dopeness of this movie comes in. Do you see this man's hair?!? He owns a hot sauce company, okay? This is the story of two men, competing for the highest Donkey Kong score ever. There's controversy, sabotage, and a whole lot of..."wait, did he just say that?"
I can't say much about this one without crying. Any parent, any person with a heart needs to see this.
If you are a Francesca Woodman fan, you will adore this glimpse into her life, and the lives of her famous family. She was an amazing photographer that took her own life, far too young. This flick is a great way of exposing her influences, as well as her ground-breaking work.
SMALL TOWN GAY BAR
Of course the title is rather self-explanatory, but the mixture of beauty and sadness in this documentary is gut wrenching.
Just watch this. I can't tell you anything about it because I will spoil everything.
Living in closed subway stations for years, these people built a community spanning decades, living in complete darkness and poverty. The filmmaker goes to live with the residents, and the results are mind-blowing.
HAVE YOU SEEN ANY OF THESE? THOUGHTS? RECOMMENDATIONS?
