Movies: Jay Myself, Brittany Runs a Marathon, The Goldfinch

Movie 1: Jay Myself

What a unique and intriguing documentary film. It’s about a photographer who lived most of his career in a six story, 35,000 square foot former bank building in New York City’s Bowery neighborhood. He agrees to sell the building for $55 million and needs to move.

It’s quirky, often funny, occasionally goofy. It’s sometimes a bit dull but at the same time it can be inspiring and entertaining. We loved it!

Movie 2: Brittany Runs a Marathon

This film was a hit at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival winning the Audience Award. This dramedy is sometimes funny but more times it’s just a peek at someone’s personal mess.

We think it is supposed to be inspiring but it falls flat in the middle and struggles to get back into positive territory.

Movie 3: The Goldfinch

This is the story of one mans life from the age of 13 well into his adult years. His mom dies when he is 13 and his immediate family experience is less than ideal.

That said, it’s a unique story with several plot twists that keep it interesting. It’s based on the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for fiction. It’s worth a watch.
