    This movie is fantastic. So fantastic, actually, I wrote a whole thing about its themes of archaelogy, theft and colonialism for the Brattle. You should read it. And then tell everyone about it (the film....but the article too).

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★

    Opening Night of International Film Festival Boston 2018.
    Q&A with Bo Burnham and Elsie Fisher.

    Bo Burnham understands better than most what it’s like to be a lonely kid trying to find the joys of online invisibility in the real world and, with Eighth Grade, has taken a sledgehammer to the outdated myth that high school is the worst part of growing up. High school is confusing, sure, but it’s nothing compared to the three year caravan of misery through halls of kids carrying SpongeBob USB drives and horny teens begging for Snapchats.

    Wrote more about this for the Brattle.

    I also have to praise the respectful, fun continuation of pastoral imagery from Shakespeare's original (hay stacks, gazebos, hills)... ugh!

    The Hating Game

    ★★★

    Ultimately Lucy Hale's character is a deeply disturbed girlboss à la BOOKSMART because Austin Stowell is hot, driven, well-read, and stays in his own lane. Did nothing wrong the whole movie! Anyway this was surprisingly engaging but I was also drunk on a plane.
