The film would be worth a recommendation on technical merits alone. But analyzing it from a feminist perspective will give you food of thought in a way similar to the Alienseries. I haven’t read Neil Gaiman’s book, though.
Nasty Old People (imdb) was mentioned a few times lately for being the first Creative Commons licensed/freely redistributable feature film from Sweden. Having just watched it I don’t feel like I wasted my time. The story and characters are quirky at times, but there are a some simple, beautiful moments of humans getting along.
Whitacre discusses bipolar disorder, prison, his marriage, lying to Fortune in an earlier interview and Steven Soderbergh’s new film, “The Informant!” where his person is presented by Matt Damon. The book on which “The Informant!” is based comes highly recommended.
According to Wikipedia, the film centers on the financial crisis of 2007-2009, the transition from the Bush administration to the Obama administration, and the stimulus and bailout package. IMDb link, official site, Apple trailers. The US theater release date is set to October 2.
