British actress Naomie Harris has been nominated for an Oscar for her role as a crack-addicted mother in the 2016 indie drama Moonlight. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some other roles she's played in her career.
I expected other things of this, but I'm not sure I met it with disappointment, merely surprise. With Bertocci helming it, I thought it was going to be funny, in the quirky, slightly "off" way he is. And with it being a documentary, one would naturally presume that it would hold interviews, descriptions and the like. Neither are true of this, or at the very least, not to any wide extent. It's all very spartan, with little to no other information than what time of day it is from. The entire thing is, crassly put, footage, cut together. It's well-chosen, and somehow, it's never actually boring. It's a fly-on-the-wall perspective of the making of a student film... or at least a scene... to be perfectly honest, some of it. I can say from my own experience(the tad I do have), that this is a pretty accurate depiction of working on a piece of this media, the shooting process of such. This doesn't really glorify it... it's basically up to the viewer to decide. I recommend this to those interested in the creative efforts that go into putting together a movie. 7/10
