Emergency Declaration

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Taking a break from writing up Fantasia movies to go to… A Korean thriller! Smart of Well Go to line three Korean movies up for late July/August, meaning they can get the preview for the next one in front of the one in theaters this week, and aud...

Fantasia 2022.13: "The Astronaut and His Parrot", Rani Rani Rani, Chorokbam, Shari, "Ronde de Nuit", Maigret, "Blackbear", Resurrection

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Folks, Marc Lamothe was pretty excited to welcome Patrice Leconte (l) to Montreal for this screening of Maigret. I could only extract a little bit from the Q&A, because it was pretty much entirely in French, and, ironically enough, I tapped ou...

Fantasia 2022.12: The Artifice Girl, La Pietà, The Mole Song: Final, and The Breach.

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Kind of an up and down day here in a way, but when the ups are as good as The Artifice Girl, that's fine. Good turnout for the second show on Monday morning, with writer/director/actor/editor Franklin Ritch, cinematographer Britt McTammany, and st...

Fantasia 2022.11: "Spice Frontier", Opal, Tang and Me, Anime Supremacy!, Vesper, "What Is in the Ocean", and Legions.

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Day 11 is the midpoint of Fantasia - I think I noted online somewhere between Anime Supremacy! and Vesper that I'd seen 36 features and 23 shorts to that point - and I'm doing much of the write-up for it on Day 21, which I'll probably end with 73 fea...

Fantasia 2022.07: Just Remembering, The Cow Who Sang a Song Into the Future, One and Four, Chun Tae-Il, and On the Line

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Wednesday was a busy day but not one with a lot of guests, and also a relatively rare day where I stuck around De Sève into the evening, which is when Hong Jun-pyo made an appearance: He was there to talk about his film Chun Tae-il: A Flame That...

Fantasia 2022.05: My Small Land, "Everything at Once", Next Exit, "Where the Witch Lives", and Dark Nature

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Got some days with weird gaps in the middle coming up that I probably could have filled, but in this case, I figured I might as well get some grocery shopping done after My Small World, just for breakfast stuff, because starting the day with just an...

Fantasia 2022.03: Baby Assassins, The Fish Tale, Popran, "Facies", and The Elderly

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Welp, that's not the first time I've found myself going to a different film than I figured on to start the day, but this may be the first time I didn't realize it until introductions started. Those introductions were Mitch welcoming The Elderly di...

Fantasia 2022.02: Coupez! and Hard Boiled

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Welcome to the last non-marathon day of the festival! From here out, it's long days and falling behind on the blog. Friday was a day of tough-ish decisions, with both My Small Land and Swallowed in de Seve not exactly having ideal second showtimes...

BUFF 2022.05: "Inbetween Days", Neptune Frost, Medusa, and Hatching

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Meet the team running things! Once again, because this is the tightest-scheduled festival you will ever see and (presumably) because of covid concerns, there was no Q&A in the theater for the animation package, but if you've got questions, the...

BUFF 2022.04: "Teenage Waterpolo", Watcher, Vortex, and Lux Æterna

By: Jay's Movie Blog


More guests! Did I get down who all these fine people were? No. It was a really quick introduction before the "Teenage Waterpolo" comedy shorts program, with the Q&A done virtually beforehand. It's available here, if you're curiou...

BUFF 2022.02-03: Honeycomb, The Innocents and Nitram

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Check it out - guests (with programmer Nicole McControversey)! I think writer/director Avalon Fast (center) and co-star/etc.Henry Gillespie-Graham (left) were the only filmmakers for a feature to visit, and almost certainly the only non-local ones...

Official Competition

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I mention something about how I was expecting a somewhat more mainstream, more broadly comic movie and as such kind of had a review framing in mind as I was settling in: That Hollywood doesn't really make this sort of movie as much as they used to,...

Film Rolls, Round 3: Lorenzo's Oil, Perfect Strangers, and Come Drink with Me

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Bruce has a slight lead over Mookie, 11 stars to 10¾, and it's a race. Mookie rolls first: A three, which gets him back into recent Western movies and Lorenzo's Oil And how does Bruce respond? A 20! Per the totally arbitrary rules, this mea...

Recent & Decent: Men and Montana Story

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm not quite going to punt the theatrical/festival stuff I've watched over the past few months - I still want to say a little more about some of the things I've logged on Letterboxd - but the past few months have had me re-evalulating what I want to...

Not Exactly Oneself: Everything Everywhere All At Once and Dual

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I've totally been holding onto that review of Everything Everywhere All at Once so that I could pair it with another movie as opposed to being lazy and distractible for the past two weeks. (Looks back and forth) Not buying it, huh? Anyway, it's ki...
