American Murder: The Family Next Door (2020)

There is a striking, and very current, commentary at work under Jenny Popplewell’s unsettling documentary American Murder: The Family Next Door, the story of the disappearance and murder of Shan’ann Watts and her daughters Bella (age 4) and CeCe (age 3).  Watts was, we see, a person who seemed to live online.  She smiles through […]

The Boys in the Band (2020)

Going into Netflix’s new version of Mart Crowley’s 1968 off-Broadway play The Boys in the Band, I promised myself that I would keep an open mind.  This movie lands at an odd point for me because just a few weeks ago I did a piece about William Friedkin’s 1970 film version for my blog and […]

Challenger: The Final Flight (2020)

A great number of reviews that I have read regarding Netflix’s four-part documentary Challenger: Final Flight are quick to criticize it for being just another talking-head historical recounting of familiar events without much new insight.  Personally, I don’t mind the approach if I’m invested in the material, and when it comes to a story as […]
