Movies: Adam, Aquarela, Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles

Movie 1: Adam

This is an odd little film that is showing in limited release.  Adam just finished his Junior year in High School.  With no plans for the summer, Adam manages to tag along with his older sister to New York in hopes of meeting a girl…

Adam ends up involved with a group of LGBTQ in his age group and quickly makes friends he is ill-equipped to engage.  That’s where we lose interest.  It’s one part comedy but a larger part tragedy.

Movie 2: Aquarela

This film is also in limited release. It is well worth seeking out. It’s a Russian Documentary about the earth’s water, it’s ice and the evolving climate change.

What makes this a must watch film is first its staggering beauty. Overall, there is virtually no soundtrack except for wind blowing, ice cracking and an annoying heavy metal episode. Otherwise it’s masterful film making.

Movie 3: Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles

This is a Documentary film that chronicles the history and background of the stage musical that opened on Broadway in 1964. It’s perhaps one of the best of the best to date: Fiddler on the Roof.

It’s a classic, a religious celebration, a legendary miracle, a social commentary, and a historic phenomenon. It has reached universal status and not to be missed.

  1. Saw Fiddler: Miracle of Miracles “. Everything about it was marvelous and so well done! Glad I agree with Jim and John!

  2. Although I agree that the photography in Aquarela was breathtaking, the movie left me cold.

    I think it suffered from a complete lack of both dialog and a story-line.
