Robert Greene’s Actress / Bob Dylan and the Oscars


Opening at the Siskel Center tonight is Robert Greene’s Actress, an astonishing documentary/melodrama hybrid about Brandy Burre, a real-life actress (best known for a role on HBO’s The Wire) who attempts to reinvent herself as a housewife and mother. It’s one of the best non-fiction films I’ve seen in recent years and I couldn’t recommend it more highly. Find out why by peeping my review at Cine-File Chicago: http://cine-file.info/list-archive/2015/MAR-15-1.html

Also, I have a few words about the songs of Bob Dylan in this year’s Oscar-nominated films at Time Out Chicago: http://www.timeout.com/chicago/blog/bob-dylan-was-all-over-this-years-oscar-nominated-movies
