    The Girl in the Spider's Web

    I just skimmed through some of the reviews here on Letterboxd and surprised to see how disliked the film is on this site. I actually thought it was a fine addition to the series... much better than the Swedish sequels to the original.

    Anyway, I really like Fede Alvarez and will support what he makes in theaters. He knows how to make great looking films with tight set pieces. Pedro Luque's cinematography is gorgeous. It's one of the best shot…

    They'll Love Me When I'm Dead

    How can a film lover not be intrigued by this subject matter. I really loved it. I'm sure that some could argue accuracy but this is Morgan Neville and he makes subjective documentaries... so I'm fine with liberties that might have been taken.

    After seeing this, I'm not sure I want to see Netflix's The Other Side of the Wind. 1) Not sure Welles ever wanted this completed 2) How can this be Welles's vision if it was edited 32 years after his death?

    I didn't know about this film until somebody at the Provincetown Film Festival called me out when I was asked by an audience member what (fiction narrative) films besides Tangerine were shot on the iPhone and I only knew about Soderbergh's Unsane.

    Impressive mobile filmmaking. Shot entirely on an iPhone 6s. I would have treated the iPhone a bit more in post but I think director Matthew A. Cherry was going for ultra raw video look.

    Dorian Missick is the lead and carries the film.

    Watched on an app called Tubi.

    Finally got to see this on the big screen and it lived up to the hype. Why Jospeh Kahn doesn't receive more love from the indie film scene bewilders me. He finances his own films and takes risks with the content.

    Bodied is hilarious and is quite beautiful from a production design and cinematography standpoint but it is also quite thought-provoking. It tackles the subjects of racism, representation and bigotry aggressively and isn't afraid to offend... just like a rap…
