THE WRECKING CREW

The Wrecking Crew

“The expansive gang, including the elder Tedesco, drummer Hal Blaine, sax player Plas Johnson and bassist Carol Kaye – not to mention Leon Russell and Glen Campbell — all kick back for casual chats, recalling the old days with wry smiles. It’s extremely sweet-natured, short on drama but full of good vibrations.” – Movie Mezzanine, 03/09/2015

COMPARED TO WHAT? THE IMPROBABLE JOURNEY OF BARNEY FRANK

Barney Frank

“No great shakes as a documentary but a hugely entertaining repository of zingers, Compared To What? follows the indefatigable congressman during the waning days of his forty-year political career. Part hagiography, part hangout-movie, how you’ll feel about the picture will presumably depend on how you feel about Barney Frank.” – Movie Mezzanine, 03/02/2015
