What are people saying?

  • Mugino's rating of the film Yarn

    An uneven documentary, owing to the unfortunate choice of two subjects who were less interesting or convincing than the other two. Olek and Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam each warrant whole films of their own. In this era when hand-knitted pussyhats are a form of protest, the feminist and humanist message of "Yarn" could have been more vibrant and provocative. Still, interesting to watch.
