IFFBoston 2019.194: The Kingmaker

By: Jay's Movie Blog

18Nov2019

One of the things that's a bit of a bummer about the Fall Focus compared to the spring festival is the relative paucity of guests; it's scheduled as if they might need a fair amount of time between shows, but there's seldom anyone on the stage fillin...

IFFBoston 2019.193: The Wild Goose Lake & The Truth

By: Jay's Movie Blog

9Nov2019

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 2019.06: Shorts Exeter and The Rusalka

By: Jay's Movie Blog

10Oct2019

I always try to get to at least one shorts program during IFFBoston, since they've completely done away with with shorts before films (unless there's been something I don't remember in the last few years) and these movies made by passionate people wh...

IFFBoston 2019.182: Monos with bonus Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles

By: Jay's Movie Blog

6Oct2019

I've mentioned a few times during my IFFBoston entries (almost done, five months later!) that there were a fair amount of decisions I tried to make on the basis of "will this thing get a theatrical release later?" that had me surprised at h...

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

By: Jay's Movie Blog

25Sep2019

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...

IFFBoston 2019.05: One Child Nation, The Pollinators, Cold Case Hammarskjöld, and For the BIrds

By: Jay's Movie Blog

28Aug2019

Sunday at IFFBoston wasn't quite planned as a documentary day but wound up that way once the overlapping showtimes, need to get back and forth on the subway (though I think this was the first year in a long time when the MBTA didn't have the Red Line...

IFFBoston 2019.02: Them That Follow & The Death of Dick Long

By: Jay's Movie Blog

17Aug2019

So very late. Mostly because I've been busy with fun things, sure, and because I was trying to catch up with the previous festival, but also because the plan of doing quick write-ups on Letterboxd while waiting in line apparently didn't happen with...

IFFBoston 2019.01: Luce

By: Jay's Movie Blog

11Jul2019

A bit weird to talk about opening night of IFFBoston after I've already tackled the end, but it's the movies. Think of it as one of those times when the movie opens with a flash-forward to the climax, and try to forget all the times I've said that t...

IFFBoston 2019.07: The Farewell

By: Jay's Movie Blog

9Jul2019

This movie opens Friday, I travel Thursday, and writing up everything else has me three months behind on this festival, so I'm starting at the end. The festival ended, as has become traditional, at Coolidge Corner with Amiko Tamagawa (left) taking...

Independent Film Festival Boston 2018.180: Roma

By: Jay's Movie Blog

6Nov2018

I very nearly wound up skipping the last day of the Fall Focus entirely - the closing night film sold out before I could buy my tickets, but that was okay because it's not like I really wanted to deprive anyone who wanted to see the new Yorgos Lanthi...

Independent Film Festival Boston 2018.179: Cold War, Rafiki, Shoplifters, and Vox Lux

By: Jay's Movie Blog

3Nov2018

Today in unintentional themes, the power of pop music. Cold War lights up when "Rock Around the Clock" plays on a jukebox, Rafiki opens with a sort of poppy score that probably had me liking the movie as a whole a lot more for the good moo...

Independent Film Festival Boston 2018.06: The World Before Your Feet and Under the Tree

By: Jay's Movie Blog

27Jun2018

Both during the film and the Q&A for The World Before Your Fee, Matt Green (left) says he's a year and a half behind on his blog, and, brother, I feel ya - note the 57-day lag between seeing this film and posting the completed review and my mild...

Independent film Festival Boston 2018.55: Searching

By: Jay's Movie Blog

25Jun2018

Festival planning: When one festival announces an early preview of a movie that you know will be playing another one later - say, when IFFBoston has a very early screening of Searching and you've already received an email about it playing Fantasia -...

Independent Film Festival Boston 2018.07: Disobedience and Damsel

By: Jay's Movie Blog

22Jun2018

Another day, another jump out of order to accommodate the fact that these movies are coming out faster than my lazy brain can review them. Disobedience hit theaters practically as soon as the festival ended, so it got a review on EFC right away and...

Independent Film Festival Boston 2018.05: Nothing Is Truer Than Truth, We The Animals, The Third Murder, and Beast

By: Jay's Movie Blog

20Jun2018

It would have been a pretty easy day to just plop down at one venue, arriving at the Brattle by 1pm and getting back on the Red Line at ten-thirty or so, but I'm not going to lie: I had no interest in seeing the third movie about the Grey Gardens si...
