About destinies of two people during upheavals of Spanish history during late 18th and early 19th century, very late inquisition and napoleonic times, as witnessed by Francisco Goya as observer. Bit overwrought, definitely not among Forman's best, still watchable.

Taking Sides
Directed by Istvan Szabo, about Furtwangler's denazification process.

I liked it. If anyone has seen it, the bit with the handkerchief is interesting. Wiping his hand unobtrusively?

Transgender hooker gets out of jail, finds out her pimp boyfriend has been cheating on her and starts tracking him down... The film takes a bit to get going but when it gets it's really good, especially the final third (and quite funny). It's a previous film of Sean Baker, director of The Florida Project. It's shot on three iphones and yet it manages not to look amateur at any moment. Very well done.

Karl and Jeffrey (Vandermolen), have you guys watched the Samuel Barber documentary yet? Would be keen to hear your opinions of it. I’m probably going to watch it again tomorrow night, which is something I don’t do much with composer documentaries.

Not yet, though I have thought about it (i.e., I didn't simply forget 8) ... between attending performances, and my own composing, the weekend was full. I'm looking at ... Friday evening for Barber.
