 A cool look at five LGBTQ+ comic book artists through their careers and their art. No Straight Lines: The Rise of Queer Comics is a great documentary.

In the Heights

 Happy and hopeful, In the Heights is a journey of joy. The lives of the community in Washington Heights in New York City is presented with song and dance. The colors are vibrant. I explored the neighborhood, and the film depicts it well. This is a wonderful film that holds up to multiple views. It was my first visit to the theater since lockdown and I'm pleased with my choice. Well worth seeing.

 The cast of Sneakers alone makes this film worth watching. A hacker film where everything they do adds up. This is a smart caper film with great performances. Well done

Crazy Mama

 Cloris Leachman is brandishing pistols and kicking ass to save the family farm in Crazy Mama. This film is a fantastic wild ride. Full of action, humor and heart. What a great rental.

Air Guitar Nation

 The documentary Air Guitar Nation follows a very specific competition. The passion of the performers is impressive. Just goes to show that there is a world for everyone.

 The stand up special Boyish Girl Interrupted is Tig Notaro and her signature style. I enjoy her comedy and enjoyed this special.

Bo Burnam: Inside

Emotions surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown are discussed by Bo Burnahm in the special Inside.  This is a creative cathartic performance that reminds us what a profound effect isolation has. Well done. Thanks Bo.


In the film Jawbreaker a kidnaping goes horribly wrong, and a group of awful high school students scramble to cover up their dastardly deeds. A dark comedy I'm glad I rented this film.
