L.A. 3-D Movie Fest Online #2 (24 May 2020)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I wasn't necessarily expecting L.A. 3-D SPACE to replace what had been on their calendar for Sunday with another online show just three weeks after their last when most months on the schedule just show one thing, but they did schedule an on-line show...

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: 11 May 2020 - 17 May 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I think this is the first week of lockdown where I went in with the goal of actually watching a movie every night, and I think it went pretty okay. I started out by noting that the Brattle recommended Dave Made a Maze as their #BreakYourAlgorithm...

L'infidélité française: On a Magical Night and Alice '19

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm wondering if I would have actually put this together as a double feature if I'd realized that Alice was French, but the split probably worked well enough to keep my being more than a little disappointed in On a Magical Night from influencing my o...

The living room in which I watched Driveways is a bit of a mess, including a couple of Amazon boxes that sort of got dropped next to the armchair after I had extracted their contents and which, on occasion, make the opening of the door take a bit of...

Free Country

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Even if it's a $10 rental rather than a $5 ticket, I must admit, I kind of like having the whole weekend to see one of the German-language films that Goethe-Institut brings to the Coolidge rather than trying to get there at 11am on Sunday. The crowd...

At the slightest provocation: Deluge (and The Back Page)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Some people, when they see a cool clip of New York City being taken out by a tidal wave from a movie early in the talkie era, watch it, say "cool!", and then, like, move on to the next hundred things in their Twitter feed. I, apparently, s...

Model Shop (and adieu to Twilight Time)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Aw, heck. Everybody sort of knew that Twilight Time Movies was not long for the world - the founder passed away a few months ago, and the imprint had dipped licensed quite a few titles from 20th Century Fox, in addition to occasionally having other...

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...

L.A. 3-D Movie Fest Online and Ape

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The Center for Stereoscopic Photography, Art, Cinema, and Education is an exhibition space/collection in Los Angeles which I'll have to visit if I make it out that way any time soon, most recently noted for crowdfunding the restoration of El Coranzon...

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...

The Roads Not Taken

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Even just limiting things to movies, there's more pressing things to gripe about than how studios are making films available, but, really, folks, why are you using vhx.tv rather than straight Vimeo, which owns them? Vimeo has an app on Roku, so we d...
