Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
Inn Saei means something like intuition or insight in Icelandic. This movie is about how to have many more
of it because it will make you all touchy-feely warm and fuzzy, which we all know we want to be. Right? I can't say I disagree with anything said in the film except that I thought we had covered all of that back in the '60s and '70s and then again in the '90s. Fine, teach school kids meditation; I would. Teach everybody meditation. I would, if they'd listen. I guess I'm a member of the choir to whom they are preaching: I don't disagree at all, but I've heard it all before.

Call Her Applebroog is an interesting documentary on the life and work of Ida Applebroog by her daughter Beth B, neither of whom I had heard of, but judging by the film I like both their work.
It was a NYT Critic's Pick, but neither IMDB nor Rotten Tomatoes seems to have heard of it. Phrembahmeter: 75%
