5 Pieces @hammertonail: Reviews of “Baden Baden,” “Risky Drinking,” “8-Bit Generation,” “I, Daniel Blake” + Criterion Blu-Ray of “The Story of the Last Chrysanthemum”


Since my last post about Hammer to Nail, the site has posted 5 more reviews of mine: Baden Baden, a French coming-of-age film about a lost twentysomething woman; Risky Drinking, a documentary about the perils of alcoholism; 8-Bit Generation: The Commodore Wars, a documentary about the history of Commodore computers, which dominated the early 1980s; 2016 Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or-winner  I, Daniel Blake, the latest from Ken Loach, about an injured blue-collar worker caught up in the horrors of British bureaucracy; and the Criterion Collection’s Blu-ray release of director Kenji Mizoguchi’s 1953 drama The Story of the Last Chrysanthemum, about the perils and passions of Kabuki actors in late 19th-century Japan. Here are links to all 5 pieces:
