Bria Venaite, who plays the mom, isn't getting awards buzz, which is a shame, because she's amazing. (It's her first acting role ever.) We'll still be seeing plenty of her at the awards shows, because she's gorgeous and fancy dresses look great on her.

    But yeah, it'll get plenty of nomination love. As it should.
    Would you compare it to like.. Little Miss Sunshine meets Beasts of the Southern Wild?
    Just found out that this was not shot on an iPhone (Tangerine). It was shot on real 35mm. WOW Can't wait to see it! ahhhh From a phone to celluloid.

    They actually screened Tangerine (before it took off) at the Bloomington LGBT FIIM Fest. Baker was there. The talk was really only about how freeing shooting on the 5s was.. very docu-drama. But this is going to be pretty opposite of that.

    ^Woodshock was so incredibly haunting and beautiful, and my jaw was literally dropped during the final scene. I felt Kirstin Dunst's pain and grief so deeply. I understand that a lot of people saw it as having a lot of style over substance, but I was enthralled, and thought the story was completely unlike anything I've seen before. It weirdly reminded me quite a bit of my own life, up all night wandering the empty town/woods I live in like a ghost.

    People are saying that one critical bit (which is glorious) was probably shot with a phone. And maybe some interiors. But yeah, it's mostly shot on celluloid, which is essential to the feel of the film. Especially in the scenes where the kids are just playing.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    Happy Deathday - I was a bit sceptical that it would be a copy of this years Before I Fall - both movies use the Groundhog Day formula: repeating every day over and over again. But here, the women die every night and try to escape this threat.
    HD is more a thriller/teen slasher movie whereas BIF has a little bit more of a reflective/philosophical vibe to it. I enjoyed both in their own way.

    Justice League

    Reviews are not encouraging but I dig the show. Still, like what a review said, it's like a big-budget trailer for Flash and Aquaman, speaking of whom I wish he had more action and oh my those pectorals. (Superman's too how did they train them?!?)
