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 2019.03: Pizza: A Love Story and Not for Resale

By: Jay's Movie Blog

3Sep2019

Both Thursday and Friday wound up being loosely-themed double features for me, though Nancy and the rest of the Festival team don't necessarily plan it that way (I did have to get on the T between Them That Follow and The Death of Dick Long for my &q...

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...

Fantasia 2019.01: Swallow and The Art of Self-Defense

By: Jay's Movie Blog

12Jul2019

Ah, the annual trip to Montreal, which went weirdly smoothly - I got up early, made it to South Station with plenty of time despite the Red Line being messed up in recent weeks, had no issues with Greyhound or the border, and the room I'd rented on A...

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...

Next Week in Tickets: Films playing Boston 26 April 2019 - 2 May 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog

26Apr2019

Only one thing going on at the movies this weekend, and we all know what that is! That's right, it's the week of Independent Film Festival Boston, which started this past Wednesday and runs through the First, taking up all five screens (and, at time...

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 2018.178: Wildlife and Border

By: Jay's Movie Blog

25Oct2018

Another year, another opportunity to point out that, despite it being as far away from the main festival on the calendar as possible, the Fall Focus is a bit part of what makes the Independent Film Festival Boston great. Folks don't just crave good...
