STREAMING REVIEWS SEPTEMBER 2022 PART 5   Leave a comment


(IF YOU DON’T HEAR FROM ME TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY &/OR FRIDAY JUST MEANS HURRICANE IAN KNOCKED OUT OUR ELECTRICITY!)

1) “Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist”–Netflix–Documentary–2 episodes–2 hours & 4 minutes–Synopsis: a man is ‘catfished’ on social media–I had never heard of Manti Te’o but seems to have been  huge news story in 2012 and shows a lot of damage the Internet can do–American media and the public crushed the life of an innocent man–my heart goes out to this man who lost everything because he believed and trusted people!

2) “Love in the Villa”–Netflix–Movie–1 hour & 55 minutes–Synopsis: Julie’s dream trip to Verona, Italy, is compromised when she finds out the villa she rented is already occupied by an attractive, annoying Englishman–you have seen this a million times before and you know how it ends–run of the mill, enjoyable and forgettable romantic comedy with beautiful Verona scenery!

3) “Echos”–Netflix–limited series–7 episodes–5 hours & 22 minutes–Synopsis: twins with very different personalities have exchanged lives many times since high school–both are married–one has gone missing–Michelle Monaghan is excellent but I couldn’t tell when she was Gina or the twin sister Leni–in the ‘old days’ when Bette Davis played twins you had no problem knowing when who was who–very confusing for me but did hold my interest for all 7 episodes

4) “Sins Of Our Mother”–Netflix–Documentary–3 episodes–2 hours & 19 minutes–Synopsis: Lori Vallow went from being a member of the LDS church to being on trial for murdering her daughter and son–harrowing to watch but made too soon as her trial isn’t until 2023 so no ending unless there is a sequel.

5) “It Takes A Lunatic”–Netflix–Documentary–2 hours & 6 minutes–Synopsis: life of an acting teacher & theatre producer–I have honestly never heard of him before though I was familiar with his founding American Place Theatre–the title is misleading because far from being a lunatic he is a warm, caring man and teacher who cared for his (some very famous) students and those he worked with.
