I KNOW A WOMAN LIKE THAT REVIEWED
“I Know A Woman Like That” is a documentary that feels like a well-curated home video. Interviewing ladies such as Gloria Steinem, Eartha Kitt and Lauren Hutton, the documentary takes a look at lives well lived without a concern for age. There’s very little structural consistency in the documentary, as so much of the material is dedicated to just the interviews. However, the evolving line of questioning is stunning for some, while others get the typical line of conversational quips.
When the documentary finally ends on the Madsens discussing their journey, you get to share in a private moment between the two. For a film that runs at under 90 minutes, you get to hear from 17 women who all share the same points in a way. Times have changes, things have improved slightly, but they all feel like they could be doing more. Steady progress is a bigger pain in the ass than having a door slammed in your face. Why? Well, it’s because you get a sense of what you could have and never seem to grasp. You either live with it or let it drive you nuts.
