Directed by Nathaniel Kahn, The Price Of Everything promises a close look at the role of art in today’s consumerist society. Particularly the rarefied world of contemporary art where everything can be bought and sold.
Featured artists and art enthusiasts include Jeff Koons, Amy Cappellazzo, George Condo, Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Marilyn Minter…
I appreciate all art forms and my favourite kind is film. However, I can’t imagine ever being convinced that art is more important than life. More reason to watch this, I suppose. Who knows, I may even be inspired afresh to pick up my paintbrush.
Three Identical Strangersis the extraordinary story of three complete strangers who discover by chance that they are identical triplets who were separated at birth.
It all starts from the day the first triplet is mistaken for someone else. A ‘someone else’ whom he soon finds out is his identical twin brother. The next hour or so of the film goes on to reveal plenty, including the circumstances that led to the separation of brothers David Kellman, Robert Shafran and Eddy Galland.
Three Identical Strangers features photographs, reenactments, video footage, interviews with the brothers as well as with those who know / knew them best. The end result is a well structured Tim Wardle directed documentary with a fair amount of detail about what actually happened after the brothers were born.
I really haven’t watched nearly enough documentaries in 2018 but I’d definitely recommend Three Identical Strangers as one not to miss. It’s an unfortunate story that’s as engaging, astonishing andheartbreaking as one might imagine – and more. Bringing to mind the age old debate of nature versus nurture among other complex issues.
My hope by the end of this film is that such cruel separations are far less likely to occur today than they were decades earlier. With that said, when you’re next in the mood for a good documentary, watch Three Identical Strangers because it’s good.

If I followed the sport of boxing, I’d already know how this film ends. Since I don’t, I’m therefore drawn to this one for insight into the life of a boxer and how the sport affects the athlete and people closest to him.
Directed by Cameron Yates; Chef Flynn is a new documentary about ten-year-old Flynn McGarry who went from cooking for his family and friends in his home, to challenging the hierarchy of the culinary world by opening a restaurant in New York City by the age of sixteen.
‘Anyone can cook!‘
These are the words that came to mind as I watched this trailer. They are words made famous by Chef Gusteau from my favourite Disney Pixar movie, Ratatouille (2007).
I want to see this to learn more about McGarry and to enjoy the story of a boy who knew his path early whilst being blessed with precisely the kind of parents one would need in order to flourish in his chose field.

306 Hollywood is directed and co-written by siblings Elan Bogarin and Jonathan Bogarin. Among other elements, 306 Hollywood features footage from the annual interviews the siblings conducted with their grandma before she passed…
I can’t ignore the definite creepy vibe this trailer conjures up, yet I’m into it. I mean, it is Halloween next month after all. I want to see more of the vintage fashion and hear what their sweet grandma had to say in the interviews.
