The Felixes

Or, the Anti-Oscars.TM

Documentary Feature 1998



CON: Title sounds like it was rejected by John Grisham. (Maybe that's a PRO)

The Farm: Angola, U.S.A.

PRO: Thoughtful documentary that actually got a bit of notice, and also got nominated. Somewhere, Michael Moore is crying.

CON: Prison movie with no lesbian couplings in the showers or Brigitte Nielsen-dominatrix types.

The Last Days

PRO: Spielberg-produced feature that could make up for Shoah not getting nominated 13 years ago. (Somebody goofed and forgot to show it in L.A.)

CON: Academy may have had its fill of Holocaust drama for one year.

Lenny Bruce: Swear to Tell the Truth

PRO: NC-17 rating prevents Leonardo DiCaprio from seeing the film. Replays some of Bruce's old routines, and two minutes of him is better than a lifetime of Chris Tucker.

CON: Today, Bruce's drug crazed, sex-addled stupor would be career-enhancing. Having a documentary glorify this means there's potential for a Daniel Baldwin flick a few years down the road.

Regret to Inform

PRO: Sounds like the 1930's film The Informer, which gets some points. We guess.

CON: I regret to inform you, the viewer, that we have no idea what the heck this is.
