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.

In Parting Glances a group of friends gather for a going away party. Relationships, careers and family are all discussed with drama, humor. The social commentary is very interesting. We see the 80s in all its glory. Good film, great performances.

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.

There is a lot of good
early work from Keanu Reeves, Diane Lane and a great group of young
actors in Hardball. Gambling, little league and urban survival delivers a
heartwarming drama with a sobering look at violence. I really liked this film.
