BUFF 2022.01: You Won't Be Alone and The Nest

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I've been trying not to jinx this for the past few weeks while also checking to see if the schedule had been announced, because I don't believe in jinxes but also don't see the point of talking about something that may not happen. Well… Did the...

Last and First Men

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Three more days of this at the Brattle - Saturday, Sunday, and Tuesday - and I recommend seeing it there while you can. I'm sure that this will wind up on video eventually, but it's the sort of thing that benefits greatly from being absorbed in a da...

Not related to the movie itself at all, really, but for the second time in as many weeks, I was clumsy in getting my popcorn into a stable position while managing soda, coat, and backpack, this time spilling just about the whole container all over th...

Labyrinth of Cinema

By: Jay's Movie Blog


As I post this, there's one last show at the Brattle at 6pm, and, yes, a three-hour Japanese film is a lot to recommend on short notice but tomorrow is a holiday for many and this is a movie where being in a theater is sort of central. I wouldn't sa...

The Spine of Night

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Yikes, I just noticed that this played one of the festivals where I've got a many-film backlog of reviews to write. Maybe I should get off my butt and get to that. In the meantime… A Q&A, with Ned and co-director Philip Gelatt, who is appa...

Just Made It Fit: Days and Prisoners of the Ghostland

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The Brattle's schedule came out before I booked my trip to Washington, DC, so I did, in fact, spend a fair amount of time hemming and hawing about whether or not I wanted to fly 450 miles to see baseball the same weekend that would likely be the only...

First Cow

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Back in early March 2020, the Harvard Film Archive had a preview of First Cow with the director present, or at least had it scheduled, and as I noted in the "Next Week" post at the time, I would miss it because I was going on vacation, but...

Two from Japan: Wood Job! and To the Ends of the Earth

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Apparently, the way to get me to stop procrastinating about which movies the local theaters are streaming is to give me the chance to make a double feature out of them. One movie, you can brush off, saying you can watch it later, but two is somethin...

Short time in the Brattle's virtual screening room: Son of the White Mare and Dead

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Both of these movies will be leaving The Brattle and its virtual screening room after Thursday (8 October 2020), so if you want to see them while kicking some money their way, do it now. They will be available elsewhere soon enough - Dead is already...

Shanghai Triad

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Not all my rentals from the Brattle's virtual cinema have been about Chinese people, but this is the third, with two others also foreign-language, which is kind of peculiar. Small samples do weird things, especially when you're someone who already t...

Lucky Grandma

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm not sure how much longer folks will be able to do this and Thousand Pieces of Gold as a double feature via the Brattle's virtual screening room, but I suspect they pair well, with different tones and periods but two intriguing women sometimes wre...

This Week in (Virtual) Tickets: 4 May 2020 - 10 May 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A lot of "other stuff going on" this week I believe I actually started the week early, watching "Das Foto-Shoot" and "Being Flat" in the morning before "commuting" to work at the other end of the apartment,...

Thousand Pieces of Gold

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Dang, am I disappointed that we're all locked down and the Brattle is showing this virtually rather than giving it a weekend on the big screen, because this film is beautiful and terrific and I wish I'd been able to see it from their front row rather...

This Week in (Virtual) Tickets: 27 April 2020 - 3 May 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I've got to find something to do to make these pages a little more interesting, just for myself looking at them. Maybe screenshot the theaters' virtual cinema pages or cut up the little advertising cards in some of the discs. I kept a little bus...

Deerskin (and some shorts)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


This movie didn't really land quite so well as I'd hoped, and one of the things I initially wondered is if it was because it was the first of Dupieux's films that I've seen at home, rather than in a theater, be it festival, midnight, or "regular...
