Some Kind of Amazing!
1 February 2020 | by winslow-39442See all my reviews

I was really amazed by this film in terms of the characters, cinematography, music, editing, and overall production for a first feature premiere. Lance Oppenheim's vision and sensitivity to Reggie and Anne, Barbara, and Dennis was incredible, especially considering the director's age. The film is not one of those boring docs but rather presents issues that make the viewer, regardless of age, think (I am still thinking of the movie and it has been three days since I saw it!) of aging, self-fulfillment, love, and happiness. The film has a universal message of hope and understanding, and strikes an emotive chord. Rarely does a film make you laugh and yet feel a bit melancholy at the same time.

All said: I watched the film twice and LOVED it. Could see a potential series spin off of the film.

This is a MUST see and kudos to all involved!
