Have you seen Netflix’s Tiger King?

I bet you did.

Everybody’s talking about it.

You can’t stop watching it.

And after finishing it, you don’t know how to feel about it.

Is it trash or what?

In the end, it’s not.

The story of Joseph Maldonado-Passage, aka Joe Exotic, is about humans, animals, politics, society, love, poverty, guns, drugs, crime, justice, loneliness, emargination.

The other side of America.

Netflix’s docu-series Tiger King is worth watching to understand why this side is so significant today.

But I bet you already did.

Rumor has it that Netflix is currently shooting one more episode which will air in April.


Ted Bundy, it’s his time again

Prepare yourself to know everything about America’s most famous serial killer.

First, you should watch the mini series (4 episodes) Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes on Netflix, released on Jan 24th.

I think watching the trailer will give you the idea of this frightening beautifully made documentary.

Second, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile movie starring Zac Efron as Ted Bundy has been presented last Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival and will soon come out in theaters.

And yes, you need to watch the Netflix series to know the reason of the movie title.

6 anni senza Amy

Ricordo ancora il momento in cui vidi le immagini dell’ultimo concerto a Belgrado, quel 18 giugno 2011, come se fosse ieri. Ricordo che l’episodio scatenó ilarità più che sentita preoccupazione. E poi BUM, il buio, Back to black.

Rivedere quelle immagini e tante altre, private, interviste, backstage nel documentario Amy è difficile, ma anche illuminante. Amy cantava per dar sfogo alle sue emozioni, sognava di trasmetterle a un pubblico ristretto, ma il fulmineo successo planetario se l’è letteralmente divorata. Le riprese dei flash insistenti dei fotografi, mostrate ripetutamente, con lei così indifesa e iconica al tempo stesso, sono forse la cosa più intensa ed emblematica di questo documentario che consiglio vivamente di guardare.
