From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media)
Four films either written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theatres this week:
- Dog Days
- Madeline's Madeline
- Skate Kitchen
- The Swan
All of these films are narrative features (no docs) and of these four, so far I seen three: Madeline's Madeline, Skate Kitchen & The Swan.
Since I couldn't make heads or tales of Madeline's Madeline, my choices are Skate Kitchen & The Swan, and frankly I loved them both. Forced to the wall (by my own rules), my Top Pick for August 10, 2018 is (drumroll please!) is Skate Kitchen if only for the way filmmaker Crystal Moselle captures the many moods of my new home -- New York City.
