Rocky’s Review
Beyond the Visible

It is one month away - May 22nd - but I am so excited that we'll be adding to our streaming line-up DIANA KENNEDY: NOTHING FANCY. It is a wonderful new documentary about 95-year-old Diana Kennedy, the world's foremost authority on Mexican cuisine. The author of nine acclaimed cookbooks and a two-time James Beard Award winner, Ms. Kennedy is called the "Julia Child of Mexico," but the feisty cook prefers "The Mick Jagger of Mexican Cuisine." "Ms. Kennedy is, by reputation, ferocious. Brilliant. Direct. Uncompromising." -The New York Times. "Cinematic comfort food of the first order." -Variety. View the Trailer

     BEYOND THE VISIBLE - HILMA AF KLINT joins our streaming line-up this Friday, April 24th. Born in 1862, Hilma af Klint was a Swedish artist and mystic whose paintings were among the first Western abstract art. She belonged to a group called "The Five," a circle of women who shared her belief in the importance of trying to make contact with the so-called "High Masters," often by way of séances. "Bristles with the excitement of discovery and also with the impatience that recognition has taken so long. It refreshes the eyes and the mind." -The New York Times. Gorgeous...goes far deeper than the surface...making an airtight case for af Klint's ascension to an elevated place in art history." -LA Weekly. View the Trailer
