Streaming reviews for week of June 6, 2021   Leave a comment


1) “I Am All Girls”–Netflix–movie–1 hour & 47 minutes–human trafficking is a huge problem but not much is being done about it–yes, it is a delicate topic but it has to be talked about and the trafficking stopped–AN INFURIATING AND ABSORBING MOVIE WITH A STARTLING PERFORMANCE BY HLUBI MBOYA!

2) “Machines”–Hulu–documentary–1 hour & 11 minutes–for a guy with 0 mechanical ability (see my NYU aptitude tests if you don’t believe me) I don’t know why I turned on a film with the title of “Machines” but I did and stayed to the end–kids and grown men work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week for a pittance–most can’t afford to buy a cigarette and never talk about food–most are so skinny it is hard to believe they work so hard–YES THE MATERIALS THEY MAKE ARE STUNNING BUT WHERE IS THEIR BEAUTY–NOT EASY TO WATCH BUT YOU WON’T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE SCREEN

3) “Pink: All I Know So Far”–Prime Amazon–documentary–1 hour & 39 minutes–up until seeing this film all I knew about Pink was that she was a singer and that was that–as a mother she is very much admired but as a singer I don’t like and/or remember her big numbers–when she sings by herself I like her but not her songs–OBVIOUSLY ALL 80,000 PEOPLE IN THE STADIUM LOVER HER

4) “Solos”–Prime Amazon–series–season 1–7 episodes–3 hours & 5 minutes–people see themselves in the future looking back on their past–sci-fi–most are monologues hence the title–TOP ACTORS SUCH AS HELEN MIRREN AND MORGAN FREEMAN SHOWING A RANGE OF EMOTIONS BUT WILL THERE BE A SECOND SEASON?

5) “Framing John DeLorean”–Hulu & Netflix–documentary–1 hour & 49 minutes–with Alec Baldwin playing DeLorean in reenactments–he doesn’t come across as the villain he seems to be making for a ‘quiet’ documentary–IF A MAN’S DOWNFALL INTERESTS YOU SO WILL THIS FILM

6) “Blue Miracles”–Netflix–movie based on a true story–1 hour & 35 minutes–if you don’t know where this story is going and/or if you don’t get choked up by the 80-minute mark and/or if you don’t want to make a donation and/or if you can’t believe this is a true story I DON’T WANT TO KNOW YOU–THIS IS A MUST SEE FILM & WAIT FOR THE END CREDITS
