The Films We Know
24 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a somewhat choppy presentation of our current cinema. It focuses on directors, particularly those who take chances. It's about female trailblazers in the art and it give us a look at the unconventional. It also points out that this era has been dominated by franchise films. We also get a look at brief snippets of some of our finest actors today, from Denzel Washington to Jennifer Lawrence and many, many more.
