Movie Diary 1/31/2017

I Am Not Your Negro (Raoul Peck, 2016). A scintillating documentary built around some of James Baldwin’s unpublished writing, blended with some of the author’s eloquent appearances on TV talk shows back in the days when talk shows had people like James Baldwin as guests. (full review 2/3)

Midsummer in Newtown (Lloyd Kramer, 2016). A Shakespeare production with schoolkids from Sandy Hook Elementary. Obviously, the throat clutches. Sort of wondering why there are so many mentions of God and no talk of guns. (full review 2/3)
