Sorry Joan, you didn’t make the marquee. Two movies are showing at the Avon right now: “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” and “Joan Baez I am the Noise.” The schedules are woven together throughout the week.
The New York Times liked the Eras movie and loved Swift:
Swift can command a stage. I’d never thought of her as someone a camera has to take in. But anytime she’s in one of those glittering bathing suits and a pair of spangled knee-high boots, the length of her demands in-taking. She can strike a formidable pose. But early, when she points to different spots in SoFi and those sections start to roar, she jokes that that kind of power is “dangerous” before kissing her biceps, except I don’t think she’s joking.
Eras Tour movie: Thursdays thru Sundays, through October 22. Go here for times and dates, or to buy a ticket ahead of time. Rated PG-13. Running time 165 minutes.
The New York Times also liked the Joan Baez movie:
At 82, Baez seems to have processed her struggles. She is plain-spoken about her early fame and her devotion to Bob Dylan, and does not let herself off the hook when her son admits to feeling her absence while she was “busy saving the world.” The documentary has a gold mine of material: drawings and journal entries, concert footage, family videos and vintage photographs.
