Oops! I got so busy yesterday that I forgot to send out the weekly digest. Apologies, and here’s what you missed if you aren’t getting the newsletters as I post them during the week.
I saw that MUBI, the subscription art-film streaming service, was showing one of my favorite movies by one of the most unique filmmakers out there, Sweden’s Roy Andersson, and I had to let you guys know. (It’s available for VOD rental on other platforms as well.)
Can I talk about politics for a second? I had a bizarrely hopeful feeling leading into Tuesday’s election, which means I was either naive or prescient. Glad not to have been naive for once.
For Friday, I went long on a big-screen superhero film for a change. Why? Other Marvel movies have dealt with loss, but in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the grief feels real because it is real.
