    "Dumbstruck" Documents the Underappreciated Craft of Ventriloquism But Has Little to Say

    There is definitely something going on with puppetry lately, as Mark Goffman's "Dumbstruck" is the third documentary I've seen about a segment of the art form in six months.

    As you may have heard over the past few weeks, the major studios (with the exception of Paramount), will be testing the waters this spring with a new premium VOD plan that will make films available in your own home 60 days after they hit theaters.

But the program is starting slow, kicking off with "Just Go With It," and introducing a new film every two weeks. But needless to say, theater owners ar...
