Streaming Reviews September 2022 Part 1

1) "Minx"--HBOMax--series--season 1--10 episodes--4 hours & 52 minutes--Synopsis: Set in the 1970s, a young feminist from Los Angeles join forces with a low-rent publisher to create the first women's erotic magazine--first off the two leads Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson are a pleasure to watch--looking back at the world then and what they are showing on TV now is interesting--certain scenes may come across as scandalous but though about pornography the series is not pornographic--just fun!

2) "Hacks"--HBOMax--series--2 seasons--season 1 10 episodes 5 hours--season 2--8 episodes--4 hours & 17 minutes--Synopsis:
explores a dark mentorship that forms between Deborah Vance, a legendary Vegas comedian and an entitled, outcast 25 year old--
I heard a lot about Jean Smart in this series but wasn't really interested in seeing it--I decided to watch the first couple of episodes and before I knew I had watched all 18 episodes--Jean Smart is as good as the critics having been saying she is and the series is interesting.

3) "Arthur Ashe: Citizen of the World"--HBOMax--Documentary--1 hour & 36 minutes--Synopsis: Tennis champion who battled prejudice on and off the courts gets his closeup--he was a much admired man and sort of a hero and this is sort of a worship portrait of him produced by his wife--he died of AIDS from a blood transfusion at the age of 49--deservedly gets the spotlight he should get and a lot of interesting bits about the man he was,

4) "The Survivor"--HBOMax--film based on the true life of Harry Haft--2 hours & 9 minutes--Synopsis: Harry Haft survived Auschwitz and other concentration camps on the strength of his ability to fight and after the war is a good enough fighter to have a match with Rocky Marciano--this is one of the most difficult pictures I have watched in a long time and should be seen.

5) "The White Lotus"--HBOMax--series--season 1--6 episodes--5 hours & 51 minutes--Synopsis: well to do guests and staff at a Hawaiian--critics are/were raving about it--Murray Bartlett and Natasha Rothwell are excellent--I didn't care for it though I watched all 6 episodes--sorry but I just can't stand Jennifer Coolidge's character.

6) "Behind the Curtain: Todrick Hall"--Starz--Documentary--Synopsis: Follow singer, composer, choreographer as he launches an original full-scale original musical Straight Outta Oz--I have never heard of Hall before and if you haven't here is some background is a very talented guy with an interesting background.
