ReelAbilities movies and talks in NYC – I saw, in 2015
Here’s what I’ve seen this yr thus far. I say thus far because next Monday night there is one more movie in the evening there offering at the JCC. Not sure if I’m attending it. But, if I do, I’ll let you all know. I underlined all of them that I disliked and will only comment in the future at most about those not underlined and that we’re NOT shorts. Shorts will be posted seperatly. Keep in mind that due to life, timing conflicts of other ReelAbilities films, and location I didn’t always get to go to my first choices. And in only one case did I feel completely obligated to go, even if I thought I wouldn’t like it. I will have more then one review post however on the film’s I liked.
Autistic Like Me: A Father’s Perspective
Endless Abilities, it was pretty good. I was glad I related to some of what the people/ person in it mentioned.
Jon Imber’s Left Hand
No Ordinary Hero: The SuperDeafy movie. It was okay.
Gabriel- I’m not surprised that I didn’t like it. But I’m glad, I went anyway.
Marie’s Story.- If I had two pick a fav. out of the longer movies. This one would be it.
The Special Need the English subtitles were hard if not impossible at times to see. And I fell asleep for part of it. The 1 speaker needed a translator. And this movie, made me appreciate the one prior to it more. Which was Marie’s Story. However, this movie. highlights a very honest , real challenge , and sad truth. For most with ASD. Even for some of us, who are on the spectrum and married. The one I felt obligated to see.
