The Peanut Butter Falcon (2019)
Excellent performance by Zac Gottasgen
“The Peanut Butter Falcon refuses to condescend to its star and tells a story that’s authentic to the life and experiences of adults with Down Syndrome.” Alan Ng. Film Threat
One of the best adaptations of a Stephen King novel.
“The best scary-funny movie since Jaws—a teasing, terrifying, lyrical shocker, directed by Brian De Palma, who has the wickedest baroque sensibility at large in American movies. Pale, gravel-voiced Sissy Spacek gives a classic chameleon performance as a repressed high-school senior.” Pauline Kael. The New Yorker.
Trees Lounge (1996)
“If anybody ever wrote a Field Guide to Alcoholics, with descriptions of their appearance, sexual behavior and habitats, there would be a full-color portrait on the cover of Tommy, the hero of Trees Lounge.” Roger Ebert. Chicago Sun-Times.
Fantastic Fungi (2019)
“The totality of Fantastic Fungi is so entertaining, informative and appealingly hopeful about the hard-working cure-all for our ailing world lying beneath our feet.” Robert Abele. Los Angeles Times.
