REVIEW | The Hard Stop

 § § ‘The film deftly shows us there is so much more than what the mainstream media covered, and the narratives they pursued.’ — — Read at Flickreel. — — Follow the editor @GaryGreenScreen — Advertisements

REVIEW | Weiner

 § § ‘With unprecedented access, eye-opening emotional complexity, and hilarity so loud as to nearly bring the house down, this is the best doc we have yet to allow us to understand the modern age of politics.’ — — Read at Flickreel. — — Follow the editor @GaryGreenScreen —
