Three Identical Strangers is a Tim Wardle directed documentary about David Kellman, Robert Shafran and Eddy Galland. Three complete strangers who accidentally discover that they are identical triplets, separated at birth…

My jaw definitely dropped a few times as a watched this trailer; not something that happens to me often. I’m watching this one for the answers to all the questions we all have about this remarkable and heartbreaking story.

POPE FRANCIS – A MAN OF HIS WORD (2018): New Trailer For Documentary About Pope Francis…

Written and directed by Wim Wenders, Pope Francis – A Man of His Word is a new documentary about the pope’s ideas, his message, his work of reform and his answers to today’s global questions.

It is more a personal journey with Pope Francis, rather than a biographical documentary about him…

I’ll be tuning in for the spectacle and to hear some potentially useful words of wisdom.

Some random thoughts that went through my mind as I watched this trailer include… ‘I’m convinced  that it’s true what they say about Italian. I already know that it’s musical and that’s part of the reason I love it. But more than that, no matter the voice or the words being spoken, the language of Italy always sounds fantastic to my ears.’

‘Of course he very likely doesn’t, but for a moment there, I was shocked to learn that the Pope had tattoos on his feet. I basically thought that the foot at 1:29 into the trailer belonged to him. Reason being, surely he’d be ‘the kissed’ not ‘the kisser’ of the foot, in a foot kissing scenario? I guess I have much to learn… another reason to watch.

ANDRÉ THE GIANT (2018): New Trailer For Documentary About André Roussimoff, a.k.a Andre The Giant…

Andre Roussimoff better known as André The Giant and also known as ‘The Eighth Wonder of the World’ is the subject of today’s documentary trailer.

Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robin Wright, Hulk Hogan, Billy Crystal and more, André The Giant is a documentary about the life and career of professional wrestler and actor André Roussimoff…

I was never the biggest wrestling fan but I do remember Roussimoff in The Princess Bride (1987).

I’ll watch in part because I’m quite sure that André The Giant is the only giant I can name. His personality intrigues me. I’m also a fan of his sense of drama and excellent comic timing –  as demonstrated by what happens shortly after 1:41 minutes in to this trailer.

Ok… I can name the B.F.G but he was never real now, was he?

RBG is a Betsy West and Julie Cohen directed documentary about the life and work of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Ginsberg has been described by admirers as a superhero and someone who ‘changed the way the world is for American women…’

I look forward to learning more about this clearly very impressive lady.

I’d probably also enjoy a feature length movie about her life. Maybe starring… I tried and failed at not saying Meryl Streep.
