AT THE MOVIES #770 IF I WANT YOUR OPINION I’LL GIVE IT TO YOU
Simon Morris looks at a documentary about the most opinionated – and some say the greatest – film critic ever, the late Pauline Kael. He also checks out two films Kael would have turned her nose up at – the remake of a Disney animated classic, and a tear-jerking, feel-good movie.
Rory’s Way features Brian Cox as a crusty invalid from the Hebrides reuniting with his estranged son in San Francisco. Also featuring Roseanne Arquette.
The Lion King is a phenomenally successful – at the box office - digital remake of 1994 Disney film, featuring the voice talent of Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiafor, Seth Rogen and James Earl Jones.
And What she said: The art of Pauline Kael is a documentary about the life and opinions of the former New Yorker film reviewer. Simon talks to the film’s director Rob Garver.
