18Oct05: The FF2 Week in Review by Jan Lisa Huttner

From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media)

Eight films either written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theatres this week:

  1. Above and Beyond: NASA’s Journey to Tomorrow
  2. Bill Coors: The Will to Live
  3. The Hate U Give
  4. Living In the Future’s Past
  5. Moynihan
  6. Private Life
  7. Trouble
  8. Venom

Four of these films — Above and Beyond: NASA’s Journey to Tomorrow, Bill Coors: The Will to Live, Living In the Future’s Past, & Moynihan — are docs. And four — The Hate U Give, Private Life, Trouble & Venom – are narrative features.

Of these eight, so far I have only seen two (due to a big family weeding this weekend), and given that I like both films very much, this is a tough choice.

But by my own rules, I must pick, so my Top Pick for October 5th is (drumroll please!) Moynihan, a superlative and very timely peek into the realities of attempts at Progressive government in the USA.
