Paul Scheer sheds some light on The Room, lets us in on a secret in The Disaster Artist, and answers your questions. Plus, we explore the origins of midnight movies and take a look at IMDb's Top 10 Stars of 2017.
Jill Godmilow is a premier American documentary filmmaker,
known mostly for telling stories about how she is trying to tell a
story. In other words, her films are quite reflexive and, in her
opinion, more honest because of that. This film is a prime
example. Unable to get to Poland to shoot the story of the Solidarity
movement firsthand, she intercuts between archival footage,
re-enacted, verbatim interviews based on transcripts, and her own
direct addresses to the camera about what is happening in her
own personal and professional life as she tries to make this film.
Viewers with little interest in documentary film as a genre or in the
Polish Solidarity movement of the 1980s might find little in this film
to hold their attention, but viewers interested in either the genre or
the subject should see it (if they can find it).
