So there wasn’t a newsletter last week as we didn’t receive any films but I got a bunch in this week so there will be a newsletter this week. And here it is!
Belfast – Kid grows up in Belfast in the 1960s in black and white in this Oscar nominated film.
Boat People – Award-winning documentary follows a Japanese photojournalist who revisits Vietnam after the Liberation. Criterion release.
Bootlegger – Lots of drama in an Indigenous community in Quebec. May or may not contain bootlegging. Gets good reviews!
France – Celebrity journalist in France gets in a car accident. Drama, I presume, ensues. From director Bruno Dumont.
Manhunt Series 2: The Night Stalker – Excellent crime series creeps into Season 2: The Night Stalker. Sadly, no Darren McGavin to be found.
Matrix Resurrections – Need some more Matrix in your lives? Now’s your chance! Watch for falling folks!
Mogul Mowgli – The always good Riz Ahmed (also donning the pen for this one) is a rapping guy on the verge of stardom when he’s struck with an affliction of sorts. Sounds a bit like Sound of Metal (also excellent!)
Night Raiders – Canadian Indigenous sci-fi thriller about a mom who joins an underground band of vigilantes to rescue her daughter. Looks cool.
The Scary of Sixty-First – What’s the dark secret that this new apartment harbours? Weird title. Comedy and horror collide! Looks cool. Blu Ray only.
Wheel of Fortune and Fantasy – Award-winning Japanese romance drama has three women having dramatic lives and such.
A Writer’s Odyssey – A man is hired to kill an author but finds the world of the novel intersecting with reality. Sounds like my life. Looks cool.
