Teddy Pendegrass: If You Don't Me (2019)
I found out more about the man, re-grooved to the music and applauded his life and talent. 19-Mar-2019
Leaving Neverland (2019)
Art should never trump an act of inhumanity. The family poured what's left of their hearts and it reverberated. 09-Mar-2019
My best friend for life exited mine (15 years ago) because she couldn't distinguish between Michael Jackson's pederast and my gay. To her, it was one and the same. I argued the difference and reiterated that I was a twink devoted to daddies but she couldn't deem me a viable role model for her children whom I rarely ever saw. It's a mother's prerogative to protect her children and for me to move on.
I was being compared to my hero but in his worst light. MJ ruined innocence and the beauty of mentoring kids because fandom is support for the man's inclinations. He insults me.
I was one of these kids who kept believing in magic even while it burned. 04-Mar-2019
Abducted In Plain Sight (2017)
The family is infuriating. It took a monster to expose the fragility and self-indulgence that exists in all families. They pat themselves for surviving it when they could have all prevented it if they weren't so glamorized by religion and horniness. Spoiler alert: when mommy, daddy and daughter describe their sexual encounters with monster they all sounded thirsty. Ridiculous. 03-Feb-2019
Surviving R. Kelly (2019)
I survived his art when it was pleasant and turned away when the man became objectionable. The series pounds on its subject with no perception to objectify him and I agreed.
He may sound liking he's singing to angels but they are fallen. 13-Jan-2019
Michael Jackson: Rich and Acquitted (2016)
A revisit of a triumph turned acrid. His legacy was as King of Horrors and to be represented mostly by white women. Was that Heather Longboobs playing MJ? 05-Dec-2018
Whitney: "Can I Be Me" (2017)
Whitney was too white, too black, too gifted and too late. The doc supports that there were many hands that aided in the legend's early exit. Friends, family and the financially attached reached into her pocket and ignored her heart. The spirituality she embraced was deaf to her prayers and her comfort, Robyn Crawford, was exiled. All Whitney wanted was to be herself but ended up interpreting what others demanded her to be. I'm sure her community's betrayal was the most malicious because anyone with an ear could hear her soul in every note she sang because it wasn't in R&B it was in her. May the legend and her daughter finally get some rest. 17-Dec-2017
I'm A Porn Star: Gay 4 Pay (2016)
Only one porn star dares to answer the question of "why?" The rest skirt it and invent different feelings for it or they just want to continue to be paid more. It's all fantasy. 17-Sep-2017
Brillo Box (3 cents Off)-(2016)
How uncanny that a doc based on an artist who lifted art grasped my attention at the moment I was doubting mine. I was subdued. Lissanne Skyler interweaves her parents love of art to Warhol's rise to fame unabashedly. The stories hold each other up and I was awakened to the fact that art is only sustained in the future when all conclusions have been tallied and you are no longer alive to value it. 17-Aug-2017
Behold the Monkey (2016)
Whimsy is how it leads an account of the accidental ruin of the Jesus fresco restoration. The approach holds as a wannabe artist, whose time was not met, seizes one last chance at redemption, and quantifies it as money-making buffoonery. I wanted more. 09-May-2017
Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds (2016)
I relished the time spent watching these still luminous legends. Unapologetic, authentic and quick witted are the most obvious observations but its the endurance that I like to celebrate. They've had as many rainbows as cloudbursts yet they thrived and discovered essentials of life that would sustain them and entertain us. I'd like to think that Carrie died because she couldn't contemplate life without her emphatic cheerleader and mama followed because there was no one left to make proud. May they rest beautifully in peace. 09-Jan-2017
Too hot to contain, cameras follow Weiner as he motivates, confronts and descends because of uncontrollable urges to quackery. The doc is brutal because the subject is. I hope Huma found some peace. 25-Nov-2016
