Another weekend and another set of reboots and remakes. This week Hollywood has its sights set squarely on that most distinguished of decades, the 1980s. Classic family film "The Karate Kid" returns in high gloss fashion, while "The A-Team" amazingly makes their first trip to the silver screen. We imagine that most of the international audience will be busy watching the World Cup, so this could be one of the milder weekends at the box office this summer. In limited runs: the Sundance fave "Winter's Bone" is released, alongside the period drama "Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky" and the surprisingly engaging documentary "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work."
A refreshingly unflinching celebrity documentary "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" arrives in a limited run today. The film offers a glimpse at an entire year in the legendary comedienne's life as she willingly discusses her career and personal life, from her love of plastic surgery, her fallout with Johnny Carson, her husband's suicide, winning "Celebrity Apprentice" and everything in between. We posted a review yesterday, finding a surprisingly raw and compelling documentary that is as far away from a fluff piece as you could imagine. RT: 90% Metacritic: 81.
