General | Latest Info

Hillary is a salvage operation, but not of reputation of person who won the 2016 popular vote by roughly 3 million; She doesnt need any rescuing. Instead, it repurposes some great film footage that begs to be see, more than 2 000 hours of inside access to the campaign. It was clearly intended to provide meat for a triumphant documentary about the moment America finally elected its first female President. What emerges is an artfully structured personal history of modern feminism, told in the context of a country and culture still grappling with a daunting degree of gender bias. Roll your eyes all you want, but Hillary has many moments of clearheaded connecting of essential series of sociopolitical dots. In seven decades of striving, Clinton failed to win a game that was often rigged against her, often based on fickle definitions of likability, personality and something akin to possessing the Holy Spirit. She survives attacks from critics whose bile increases to the point that they literally demonize her. She rises above focus - group opinions that somehow blame her for her husband's issues. In 600 - day campaign, she estimated that she cumulatively spent 25 of those days sitting for hairstyling and makeup. Smile more, say middle - aged goateed man in a baseball hat, as candidate Clinton relentlessly shakes hands on the trail, while smiling as much as human face muscles will allow. Boil down, this is a film about that. Honestly, Bernie just drove me crazy, she say. He was in Congress for years. Years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he gets nothing to do. He was a career politician. He did not work until he was, like, 41 and got elected to something. It was all just baloney, and I feel so bad that people get sucked into it. Another notable moment Come in Part 3, where the viewer would probably assume that there is nothing left to say, as both Clinton and her husband, Bill, reflect on the lasting damage of his extramarital affair with Monica Lewinsky in the mid - 1990s, while he was President. Interview about this separately, couple fall back on many of things theyve said before, but their faces and mannerisms, even now, seem to say what words cannot. His hands and voice still tremble as he explains his personal baggage and the level of counseling it takes for him to truly see himself. Her eyes fixed on a faraway corner as she explained her reaction, her decisions, her defense of him: As a talented young attorney who had worked on impeachment hearings of another President, Richard Nixon, she knew Bills transgressions were not impeachable offenses. Burstein is not here simply to commiserate or adulate, though the film necessarily serves measures of both.

Saturday Night Live

The week of March 2 is a big one for FX Networks, with five series debuting on linear channels FX and FXX and the first original Devs, from Alex Garland for the company's FX on Hulu hub. Hulu also debuted its Hillary Clinton documentary Hillary. It's also likely only week of 2020 in which viewers will be able to watch a man try to walk tightrope stretch over a live volcano. Here is Hollywood Reporter's rundown of some of coming week's highlights. It would be next to impossible to watch everything, but let THR point way to worthy options each week. All times are ET / PT unless note. When filmmaker Nanette Burstein set out to make a film about Clinton, she needed access and editorial control, according to producer Howard T. Owens. She gets both, and the result is Hillary, four - part documentary premiering Friday on Hulu. The former Democratic presidential nominee, secretary of State, senator and first lady told THR the result is both exhilarating and obviously painful at some points, as it spans much of her life and not just the 2016 campaign. Burstein also interviewed Bill and Chelsea Clinton, former colleagues, campaign staffers and friends for the documentary. Fx on Hulu's Devs is as hypnotic as Garland's Ex Machina and Annihilation, says THR chief TV critic Daniel Fienberg, even if the ending turns little toward being too on nose. Apple TV + revive Steven Spielberg's 1980s anthology Amazing Stories with five episodes debuting Friday. Also Friday, Amazon drops drug - world drama ZeroZeroZero, and the second season of Paradise PD debuts on Netflix. Also New: Twenties Is based on project creator Lena Waithe first wrote when she was in her early 20s. The series stars Jonica JoJo T. Gibbs, Christina Elmore and Gabrielle Graham. Queen Sono is Netflix's first original series from Africa, and spy thriller follows a South African agent on missions across the continent. Though it has rough patches, THR critic Daniel Fienberg notes that the show has confidence in its voice and identity. The six - episode first season is streaming now.

The Outsider

There is no more divisive modern political figure than Hillary Clinton. She invokes more passionate defense and unbridle vitriol than arguably anyone - yes, even him, as lot of his defenders often couch their praise in caveats - and so it makes sense that the bio - doc of her life would be too big for a movie theater. Nanette Burstein, great filmmaker behind Ropes and Kid Stays in Picture, gave Clinton four hours in her excellent New docu - series that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and landed on Hulu in March. Hillary is a razor - sharp piece of filmmaking, movie that doesnt just hit the chronological beats of Clinton's life but places them in the context of how they impact campaign and the Election of 2016. Her approach brilliantly draws lines from Clinton's youth and subsequent major events of her political career to campaigns against Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. People who long ago made up their minds about Hillary Clinton - which is pretty much everyone in the world - will likely bring that baggage to their predetermined opinion of the Burstein project, but this is incredible documentary filmmaking, no matter your party affiliation, must - see TV event. Burstein's approach seemed simple at first. Very long, revealing interview with Clinton herself is used to comment on both the 2016 campaign from primaries to Election Day and her biography. And so Hillary cuts from campaign meetings in the most recent chapter of her political career - we see a lot of interesting debate prep and reaction opposite both Sanders and Trump - with jumps back to her childhood, life in College & Law School, meeting Bill Clinton, and all the subsequent scandals with her husband and beyond. Hillary is more revealing about a lot of these events than she has ever been before, but do go into Hillary expecting some salacious, tell - all event. She has long been one of the most publicly analyzed people alive, and so Hillary is short on revelations, but that makes how deftly Burstein turns all of these major events into a complete picture all more remarkable. We know major life events that Hillary has to hit from her attempts at reforming health care to controversies of Bills Presidency to those damn emails, and HRC is willing to talk about it all, but it is how Burstein places them in a biographical context that is so impressive. Great biographies in any form do just list off major events, they tie life together in a way that feels like a complete picture. Burstein does that with one of the most well - known lives in American history here. We may know all the stories of Hillary, but they 've never been tied together in a way like this before, revealing the life of a strong, smart woman who was often the victim of things entirely out of her control. Burstein's skill as a filmmaker extend to the trust that HRC places in her here, resulting in the most open and engaging interview of her career.
