For good measure I'll throw out a couple more today!
"Whiplash" This was nominated for best picture and gave a Best Supporting Actor win for J K Simmons. My opinion of the movie could be summed up by my reaction as the film ended, "Holy fuck!" Yeah. It was that good.
"Print the Legend" I just saw this documentary from Netflix this morning. It's about the explosion of 3D printing within the past few years. If you're a tech geek you'll love this movie. It's amazing how small companies have gone from garages to high rises in such a short period of time. It's really about the men who are the new Gates/Jobs of the industry.
"Life Itself" This is the documentary about the life of film critic Roger Ebert. It was painful to watch his cancer-destroyed face toward the end of his life, but his life story was pretty amazing especially how he and Gene Siskel changed the movie review business and the whole movie industry. I grew up with their reviews since they got their start on WTTW in Chicago in the 70's. And until next time...the balcony is closed.
