Taking a short break from movie watching, will return in summer of 2021.

    Go Tell It On The Mountain


    Serviceable. Finished reading the novel yesterday and watched this shortly after. Feels like the type of movie an English teacher would show in class cause this is mostly a sparksnotes condensed plot summary. Aggressively un-cinematic (aside from a particular inspired shot) but with a pretty stellar cast that makes it not a complete waste of time.

    I don't like church or religion, but I like the community it fosters. That's all I have to say on the matter.

    Trois: The Escort


    OH MY GOD, a Trois film feels like an actual movie with crowd scenes, multiple locations, competent acting, and actual film direction! Sylvain White>>>>>>Rob Hardy.

    Now I'm not saying that I want to write an essay dissecting black erotic thrillers, BUT IF I WERE to write that essay I would probably use this as neat jumping off point.

    In a better world, Cheryl Dunye would've blown up and be a household name and we would all be blessed with a plethora of smart, lesbian romcoms.

    So Pretty

    While the rest of mainstream queer cinema strives for assimilation (Love Simon, Call Me By Your Name, etc) this film is a much needed radical breathe of fresh air.
