My Octopus Teacher

The documentary My Octopus Teacher is fascinating. Beautifully shot. Emotionally narrated. This is a thrilling story I did not expect. Wish I had been able to see this in the theater. Nature up close is amazing, and at times, brutal. I really liked this film.

Relic

Generations are haunted in the film Relic. Is it a specter? Is it the house? Is it reality? Getting to the bottom of strange goings on is a good horror ride. Sometimes reality is more frightening than the supernatural.

Let's Scare Jessica to Death

A creepy thriller with a 70s vibe, Let's Scare Jessica to Death keeps you guessing what's real, what's not? The production design is cool. For some reason I was obsessed with the glass doorknobs. Good rental.

ANN

 The one-person show ANN is a wonderful portrayal of Ann Richards. Holland Taylor portrays the former Texas governor skillfully and with a lot of heart and grit. Her no-nonsense approach to life and politics is inspiring. I'm glad that I watched this.
