Documentary Review: “Framing Britney Spears” on FX/Hulu

When all this “Free Britney” hysteria started, and every time it’s kicked up since, I’ve shaken my head at the conundrum her unique situation seems to present.

DEATH TO 2020 (2020)

Death To 2020 (2020), Cristin Milioti, Netflix My favourite thing about Netflix’s Death to 2020, a comedic retrospective of the year that was 2020 is the phrase ‘Prime Ministerial scarecrow, Boris Johnson.’ I laugh every time I re-read it, because it’s true. There’s certainly a handful of more amusing moments within the show, whether it’s […]

Enjoy this 1930s version of ‘A Trip Down Market Street’ in color

I’ve recently seen this stunning piece of film on YouTube that was posted in November of 2020. Shot in the 1930s, it’s a drive down Market Street from Steuart Street near the Ferry Building to Stockton Street. The filmmakers were obviously inspired by the famous 1906 film ‘A Trip Down Market Street’. It’s been colorized […]

FRIDA KAHLO

It’s likely that Frida Kahlo’s face is better known than her paintings. Then again, the same could be said of many public figures.
