This week brings several noteworthy documentaries to screens in New York City:
Tomorrow, Caroline Suh's Frontrunners opens at the Film Forum. Obviously, I'm a little biased about this one since I'm credited as the film's music consultant, but I think it's become even more timely in light of the current presidential race. Removing that from the equation, I still find it to be a warm, positive, engaging little film. Caroline and special guests will be doing Q&A's on Wednesday and Friday and Saturday, but see it whenever you get a chance. Obviously, a strong opening weekend at the box office will help them to extend their run and book more theaters across the country, so the sooner you go the better. Good luck, Caroline and Jane and Erika and Oscilloscope!
Friday, Jay Delaney's unexpectedly sad Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie opens at the Pioneer Theater. This one really caught me off-guard and has lingered with me since I saw it this past spring before SXSW. I'm planning to write more about it at Hammer to Nail on Friday.
I am in the Hamptons gearing up for the festival, which is shaping up to be a rockin' good time. I planned to post my Woodstock pictures while I was here but they're on my hard drive in Brooklyn so that will have to wait until next week. Sorry, Lerman.
