Rocky’s Review
Aggie

URSULA VON RYDINGSVARD: INTO HER OWN, has been streaming via the Rose website for nearly five months. I can't let it go because I like it so much. If you haven't seen it, here's another reason to check it out. There's a cameo in the film by arts patron Agnes Gund. And making a cameo in the new film AGGIE - streaming Friday - is Ursula Von Rydingsvard. Agnes Gund is a philanthropist, a staunch supporter of women's issues and environmental concerns. But that's not why a documentary was made about her. It was made because Agnes did something very unexpected and most remarkable: She sold a painting that she owned by Roy Lichtenstein for $165 million to start the Art for Justice Fund to reform the American criminal justice system and end mass incarceration. It's an incredible story of art and justice - "Aspiring, inspiring, and beautiful." -Film Threat

     MAJOR ARCANA, also streaming Friday, was born out of director Josh Melrod's own history with drug abuse, and the desire to make a fictional story about trying to remain sober. Melrod lives in rural Vermont, and he also wanted to make a film where "the stakes are real and human and relatable." And this is the cool part - he wanted to show someone building a cabin from start to finish. It's a great progression to watch. "A stunning back-to-basics film." -The Dreamcage

     This is the final week to watch PETER PAN, THE GENERAL and STEAMBOAT BILL, JR.
