What an excellent movie. Nothing short of sheer brilliance in story-telling and film-making. Stunning star power with a couple of big names, and gave me pause.

When did I write about the original documentary, “Hands on a Hard Body”?

Can’t find it. I recall a New York-based editor telling me it was a wonderful script, and it played for a year in art theaters. I remember the Aquarius I saw the film with, and I remember thinking that I knew some of those people.

New York note: not scripted, hence the term, “Documentary.”

So the movie, in very limited release, called, “Bernie,” is an excellent film. Based on a true story, but liberally and artfully elaborated upon, nothing short of both big fun, and emotionally stirring.

Highly recommended. and its family of websites participate in affiliate programs, which means there are material connections between the ads, and this site. for appearances —
