From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media)
Seven films either written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theatres this week:
- Boom For Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat
- The Last Horsemen of New York
- Life of the Party
- Lu Over the Wall
- Mountain (2017)
- What Haunts Us
Of these seven, I was able to see two. One — Boom For Real — is a doc. The other one — Revenge – is a narrative feature.
Truth be told, I lived both of these films but didn’t love either of them, so choosing a Top Pick for May 11th is a coin toss. But if I have to pick one (and by my own self-imposed rules, I do), then my pick for June 1st is — drumroll please — Boom For Real.
