Tangerine ★★★★

I really miss my iPhone 5s. I swear, if I so much as give my iPhone 6 a funny look, the screen cracks. But enough of my first-world problems ... It seems to me that there is a certain irony behind all the buzz with this one: while this Christmas-in-L.A. movie, with its distinctly alternative perspective famously shot from the said iPhone 5s, will no doubt inspire others to delve into DYI cinema, the savvy hand of co-writer/director Sean Baker will ultimately demonstrate that no matter how ubiquitous and accessible the technology for visual storytelling is, not everyone's story is interesting and not everyone is cut out to tell such stories. Not by a long shot
