TV Docuseries Review: “McCartney 3,2,1” on Hulu

Watching this feels as if we are sitting in on a conversation that we’re not supposed to be hearing, giving its audience a real fly-on-the-wall experience. It reflects on Paul’s career with The Beatles, as a solo artist, and how all of the songs came to be.

Super Soundtrack: ‘Pig’ starring Nicolas Cage (dir. Michael Sarnoski)

The score composed for Pig features perfectly timed swells of music that just amp up the suspense. It fills the space with suspense and vigor, as if it needed more of that. The inflections of violin and string instruments are perfect for this film. The score absolutely matches the intensity Nicolas Cage brings to this film with his performance. Subdued but still brutal, this is honestly some of the best acting yet from Cage.

North Bend Film Festival 2021 Movie Review: ‘Swan Song’ (dir. Todd Stephens)

This is the role Udo Kier was born to play. We need to see more from him, so make sure this film isn’t his Swan Song. Come for the wicked dry comedy. Stay to see Kier lip sync Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” in drag.

Film Review: ‘The Sparks Brothers’ Documentary (dir. Edgar Wright)

Rarely would I recommend someone watch a documentary about something they might have absolutely no interest in, but this is a unique character study on these two-of-a-kind brothers that formed a band you might not have heard of before now.
