13th - ★★★☆☆
It's so refreshing, personally, to see a thought-through documentary, making deliberate choices in both style and substance. That said, it feels just a little bit like the movie the filmmakers intended to make, and then an extra chunk they didn't plan for, but felt obligated to include.
The Founder - ★★☆☆☆
Man, I was looking forward to this one for a while last year, but I think they forgot at least an act. I guess sometimes there's a reason you move a film to the movie release graveyard.
Snowden - ★★★☆☆
I thought that since I saw Citizenfour, I wasn't going to learn anything from this movie, but I did. I learned a lot about Ed Snowden. IF any of it's true!
Weiner - ★★★½☆
Man. This guy. Is it fair for us to be mad at someone about their addiction? Is there a followup special we can watch where someone confronts him about whether we can pin 45's presidency on him?
In any other political generation to date, I bet he would have just been a well-liked and effective public servant.
