    Watched this at San Diego International Jewish Film Festival. Looks to the Muslim members of the Israeli soccer team. Straightforward doc with strong content. Worth seeing.

    A bit drawn out but it delivers with some highly inventive and well deserved kills. Also some fun clown mythology. Best to watch with a crowd.

    Watched this again as I finalized my top ten of 2021 but there was never a doubt this would be number one.

    Brian Hu, artistic director of San Diego Asian Film Festival brought two of Ryûsuke Hamaguchi's films to San Diego last year and it was my first introduction the the filmmaker. Needless to say I fell in love with his work.

    Winston Duke (of Us) excels as a person (or perhaps a being) who interviews human souls for the opportunity of being given life on earth. The film marks the astonishing feature film debut of writer-director Edson Oda. The visually poetic film is inventive and offers an achingly sweet celebration of the tiny details of life that we should appreciate.

    My number 2 pick on my ten best list of 2021.
