Don Shanahan of Every Movie Has a Lesson reviews the festival fave “Comfort” and the documentary “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You”

“NORMAN LEAR: JUST ANOTHER VERSION OF YOU”

The adjectives “titan” and “humble” are not commonly found together.  Famed television producer Norman Lear is an iconoclast in every way.  His successful shows and the waves they created are forever chiseled into that industry.  Away from the his seat as a creative czar, the man remained a hard-working and vigilant self-made man of activism and integrity.  In his 90s, Lear has crossed unimaginable measures of impact and history.  The new documentary “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You” stylishly chronicles his vast contributions.

“COMFORT”

The simplified noun definition of “comfort” reads “a state or situation in which you are relaxed and do not have any physically or emotionally unpleasant feelings.”  Especially during this summer season of loud blockbusters and mayhem, when was the last time you felt simple comfort coming out of film?  What types of films bring you comfort?  That is a formula few genres and films can crack.  William Lu’s patient romance and successful festival award winner is entitled “Comfort” and does its absolute best to deliver that very feeling.
