Critically Acclaimed #137 | Paramount, An American Pickle, The Secret Garden, Work It, Out Stealing Horses, She Dies Tomorrow, The Burnt Orange Heresy, Symbiopsychotaxiplasm

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED is overflowing with movies this week!

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold ponder the ramifications of undoing the Paramount decision - potentially opening the door to studios buying movie theaters and developing monopolies - and review the new Seth Rogen comedy AN AMERICAN PICKLE, the latest adaptation of THE SECRET GARDEN, the Netflix dance film WORK IT, the psychological horror film SHE DIES TOMORROW, the Norwegian drama OUT STEALING HORSES and the art heist film THE BURNT ORANGE HERESY.

Also this week on THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STREAMING CLUB, Bibbs and Witney explore William Greaves' experimental documentary SYMBIOPSYCHOTAXIPLASM, about the making of the making of a movie, and it's decades-later experimental sequel!
