    The Newbridge Tourism Board Presents: "We're Newbridge, We're Comin' To Get Ya!"

    ★★★★

    There are hundreds and hundreds of hours of Newbridge mythology in the archives of “The Best Show.” There are not quite 12 minutes of this, the only visual adaptation we’ll ever see. Folks, they deliver, from the shot of Philly Boy Roy digging into his bag of “perversions” to the animated tale of tolksfolk covering George Washington’s saddle with lard.

    I admire that Proyas convinced investors to fund his shimmery mythology sex fantasy; hell, no one will fund mine. I admire all the sequences where Geoffrey Rush is piloting a sun-ship and battling a billion-toothed apocalyptic dragon. That’s it.

    An extremely long PSA for responsible horse ridership.

    Let Sean Baker do anything he wants. After "Tangerine" and this one, I'm ready to call him America's Ken Loach -- except he knows better than to tie everything together neatly. The secret, I think, is that he asks us to identify with people who can't or don't want to express themselves well, and just runs the movie around them.
