    REVIEW | Root for the Cause, Not the Product: "Made in Dagenham"

    The best scenes of "Made in Dagenham" run alongside the end credits. After two hours of a fictionalized take on the 1968 Ford machinists strike, when British women lashed out at the company's unequal payment policies, the real survivors of the protest get a chance to speak up. Recalling their decisi...

    DOC NYC Review | Grandpa's Legacy: "Discoveries of a Marionette"

    Family history, rendered in documentary form, usually has more appeal for the family than anyone else. "Discoveries of a Marionette" provides an alternative approach. Norwegian director Bjarte Morner Tveit appears to learn things about his grandfather's adventurous backstory at the same time that we do, resulting in a refreshingly unconventional portrait of generational inquiry. Rather than making himself the star of the show, Tveit presents his grandfather's history through the research materials provided for him, and ponders their larger significance. His grandfather, Alf, was a Norwegian resistance fighter in World War II, and sailed aroun...
