Lucky Grandma

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

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...

Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Last day for this in the Brattle's virtual screening room, although I wouldn't be surprised if West Newton or someone else picked it up, even if nobody still has Bacurau to let you do a Sonia Braga double-feature. I'm not sure how the negotiations f...

Hey, director Paul Solet! (with the Brattle's Ned Hinkle on the left) Solet is from Cambridge, which probably helped his film get booked at the Brattle and encouraged him to show up for a Q&A on opening night. It's a short run - ending Sunda...

Things to Come: The Birth of Sci-Fi Cinema at the Brattle

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The Brattle Theatre is doing a year-long series of series for science fiction film this year, which is quite obviously a Thing I Am Excited About, enough so that I hunkered down for most of a series for the first time in months, perhaps longer if fes...

This Week in Tickets: 27 January 2020 - 2 February 2020

I hate the reason that it happened, but I would have run myself completely ragged going to movies if the Lunar New Year Movies hadn't all been cancelled/postponed. It's fairly rare for me to run the table for a series at the Brattle these days, a...

This Week in Tickets: 6 January 2020 - 12 January 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


You know what seems like it would be a pretty good idea, sometime? Choosing a day, not setting an alarm, and just getting to work when I get there, working until 7pm if that's what what gets me on a good schedule. Might get me back to Davis at a ti...

I've mentioned before that I feel weirdly victorious when I see a movie or TV show produced by a streaming service without being subscribed. It's silly - I absolutely know that I've spent more on certain things than just watching it the expected way...

This Week in Tickets: 25 November 2019 - 1 December 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Working from home is no fun and I'm glad I'm done with it for a while, barring snow. It does lead to some interesting scheduling like we saw at the start of the last few weeks, where I headed to the Brattle for the very nifty The Last of Sheila a...

IFFBoston 2019.232: Greener Grass

By: Jay's Movie Blog


An online acquaintance tweeted about how disappointed she was that the theater was awful quiet for this to the point where she felt uncomfortable laughing as hard as she did, and I have been there. Not for this movie - I was a couple rows behind Ale...

IFFBoston 2019.193: The Wild Goose Lake & The Truth

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The Fall Focus seemed a bit more like a preview series this year, with most of the films having releases coming up pretty soon - some would begin their rollouts the very next weekend - but the ones I wound up seeing were those whose theatrical releas...

IFFBoston 2019.04: We Are Not Princesses, Ms. Purple, When Lambs Become Lions, and In Fabric

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Sometimes, when planning a festival, you look at a day and maybe think that you're not sure anything in it really grabs you until you see that Ms. Purple is by the guy who did a movie you loved a couple years back, and then that slot's sorted. Then...
