Hot Docs 2017: Gilbert, School Life, Rivolta, Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World

Over at In the Seats, I continued my Hot Docs coverage with reviews of Gilbert, School Life, Rivolta and Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World . I have included the Hot Docs synopsis of both films and links to my reviews below:

Gilbert_2

Gilbert
Hot Docs synopsis: ”The bluest jokes and the shrillest whine delivered with a perpetual squint—what’s not to love about Gilbert Gottfried? Publicly polarizing yet intensely private, the scandalous comic opens his peculiar life and process to cameras.”

School_Life_1

School Life
Hot Docs synopsis: ”A heartfelt look at the lives of two soon-to-be-retired educators—and married couple of almost 50 years—whose passion and idiosyncratic teaching styles inspire and challenge the young students of Ireland’s last primary-age boarding school.”

Rivolta__04

Rivolta
Hot Docs synopsis: ”Discover the intoxicating world of hacking through the eyes of Michael “Mafiaboy” Calce, who, at 15, was involved in one of the most egregious and widely covered cybercrimes in North America. As hacking becomes more sophisticated and widespread, and information becomes synonymous with profit, can anyone remain immune to a breach of security?”

Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World
Hot Docs synopsis: ”The sound of rock ’n’ roll was forever changed by Link Wray’s distorted guitar. Decades later, his legacy—and that of other Native Americans who shaped popular music—is given overdue recognition in this Sundance award winner.”
