Poster – HBO

The following is a review of the HBO Documentary – Robin Williams: Come Inside my Mind.

For no reason, in particular, I rewatched Vincent Ward’s What Dreams May Come the other day. It is a fantasy-drama from the late 1990s that is memorable for its unique look as it showed audiences a different version of the afterlife. It is a film about the immortality of the human soul, the idea of soulmates, and it is also a film that pays particular attention to a character who died by suicide. (more…)

REVIEW: The Tale (2018)

Release Poster – HBO Films

The following is a review of The Tale — Directed by Jennifer Fox.

When Jennifer Fox was a thirteen year old girl, she had what she for the longest time would always refer to as her ‘first relationship.’ It was with an older man, she would explain. She had much love for him, she would claim. She had made use of that experience to get a good grade in English class, she would explain. She had fictionalized some of the story she had presented in class, she claimed. But none of those assertions or explanations told the whole story. (more…)
