"The cinematic landscape has barely recovered from 2015’s vivid IPhone odyssey Tangerine. Seemingly summoned from the brightest rays of Hollywood sun, Sean Baker’s Christmastime portrait of working girls brought vérité texture to frequently marginalized people and landscapes, invigorating unseen American corners through truthful emotional dynamics, empathetic depiction, and a startling, visceral jolt to independent aesthetic. And just while we’re getting back up, he drops this on us, and it’s a doozy. The Florida Project, Baker’s newest endeavor (opening in limited release on October 5th), evolves his successes into the realm of fantasy."
Sean Baker has a new movie, and of course, it's the best of the year. Without a fucking doubt.
