Gaga – Five Foot Two is a new documentary about pop provocateur Lady Gaga. Directed by Chris Moukarbel, the film takes us behind the scenes as the pop sensation releases a bold new album and prepares for her Super Bowl halftime show…

I’m watching this one to find out what Gaga has been up to since her second album. I kind of lost track of her after then. therefore, I don’t even know which Super Bowl halftime show the above synopsis is referring to.

Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, 78/52 is a documentary about the famous shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960) which contains the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema. Alan Barnette, Justin Benson, Peter Bogdanovich and Jamie Leigh Curtis are among those featured…

I’m a Hitchcock fan and my favourite of his movies that I’ve seen is Rear Window (1954) and Psycho isn’t far behind. Watching 78/52 should be interesting for more reasons than the fact it’ll remind me of having seen and enjoyed Psycho, in a classroom years earlier.

Co-directors Bruce Parry and Mark Ellam are the team behind Tawai – A Voice From The Forest, a new documentary that follows explorer Bruce Parry as he travels the world, living with indigenous peoples.

My very modern life certainly isn’t simple and I’m curious about what the opposite experience could be like. I’m also particularly interested in how the the community survive among all the creatures that may want to eat them.

24X36 – A movie About Movie Posters is Kevin Burke directed documentary about the birth, death, and resurrection of the illustrated movie poster. Film director Joe Dante, artists Orlando Arocena, David Byrd,  Matt Tobin and Andrea Alvin are among those featured…

As I go about my days away from home, encountering a movie poster for a film I’m looking forward to seeing has always been a highlight. In fact, it never fails to put a smile on my face. Sadly though, that’s probably the only time when I actually care about movie posters. Even then my interest is never really about the artistry; unless it’s amazing or the opposite extreme.

I want to see this documentary to find out what I may be missing. Perhaps I’ll encounter an illustrated movie poster I just have to have. Since I’m not into comic books either, the likelihood isn’t great; in which case I’ll probably be happy to settle for an education.

Manolo – The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards is a new Michael Roberts directed documentary about Manolo Blahnik, the man regarded by those who know as ‘the best shoe-maker of the 20th and 21st centuries’. Roberts’s film offers an in-depth portrait of Blahnik, the self confessed ‘cobbler’ whose work is adored by the likes of Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, Iman – to name just a few…

To say that I’m shoe obsessed would be a lie, but I am ever curious about creative people and I’ll watch this to take in the beauty and art of Blahnik’s designs.
