Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.09: The Asian Angel and Joint

By: Jay's Movie Blog


No 2021.08? Well, what can I say, 2021's weird - not much marked as "Day 08" for Fantasia that I caught, and then it was off to the Big Apple! So, this would have seemed like a bigger deal if I were posting these updates in a timely fas...

Movies on Vacation: Blue Bayou and The Wife of a Spy

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Seeing movies on vacation is always a bit odd, because it's hard not to think "I didn't need to travel 450 miles to do this", but then again, what do most people do in the evenings on vacation? The museums all close at 5:30pm, only one of...

Make the Movie You Want to Star In: Small Engine Repair and Language Lessons

By: Jay's Movie Blog


It seems like we used to see a lot more movies like these two on the festival circuit and in theaters afterward, with actors writing and directing the parts they want to play, writer/directors acting in their films because there's just not enough mon...

Fantasia 2021 Extra: Cryptozoo

By: Jay's Movie Blog


A kind of amusing thing, now that the festival is over and I've blown past all the embargo dates, is that the date for Cryptozoo was on Saturday the 21st, when it actually opened in Boston on the 20th. Would I have been breaking embargo to review it...

Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.06: Hotel Poseidon and Baby Money

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Fairly narrow windows of availability during this virtual festival had me watching Giving Birth to a Butterfly and Hotel Poseidon back-to-back, two films with surreal elements that may be revealing just in terms of what I'm up for. Butterfly is 77 m...

Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.05: Giving Birth to a Butterfly

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Short day, and not necessarily because I was daydreaming about the possibility of going up to Montreal for the film in the festival's lineup that I most wanted to see, Septet, which apparently was only screening once, in person at the Imperial. Hope...

Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.03: Pompo: The Cinephile and Tin Can

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Two scheduled screenings from north of the border on Saturday, albeit opposite ends of the day - Pompo played at 1pm and Tin Can at 9:30pm - and pretty close to the opposite ends of what Fantasia is as a festival: The first is a Japanese import that...

Fantasia/New York Asian Film Festivals 2021.02: Broadcast Signal Intrusion, Seobok, Escape from Mogadishu, and The Suicide Squad

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I can't be in Montreal, but… I had the idea of figuring out how many spots in my general area had this bit of French-Canadian cuisine on the menu while covering Fantasia last year and having a "poutine of the day" to go with the fest...

IFFBoston 2021.09-11: First Date, Luzzo, Last Night in Rozzie, Weed & Wine, The Gig Is Up, and How It Ends

By: Jay's Movie Blog


One of the useful things about the way IFFBoston ran this festival online is that, when either my second vaccine shot on Friday (14 May 2021) or just being out and about all had me pretty wiped out at the end of the day, I could basically just push t...

First Cow

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Back in early March 2020, the Harvard Film Archive had a preview of First Cow with the director present, or at least had it scheduled, and as I noted in the "Next Week" post at the time, I would miss it because I was going on vacation, but...

IFFBoston 2021.08: Marvelous and the Black Hole

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The good news about taking forever to do write-ups: Sometimes you see a movie about kids, get a chance to see your nieces who are roughly the same age, and it kind of erases any doubts one might have about how well the filmmakers get tweens. Not th...


By: Jay's Movie Blog


I predicted that Censor would wind up in theater #9, but I was one off and it got a second week to boot. It's kind of a pandemic booking, as Kendall Square stopped booking Magnet's genre movies regularly early on in the label's existence, even when...

IFFBoston 2021.07: Strawberry Mansion

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I was going to have a blank spot on IFFBoston's Wednesday slot because the only scheduled premiere was The Sparks Brothers, and I figured I'd catch it during a theatrical run, but they opted to move this one up a couple days (and make it available th...

IFFBoston 2021.06: The Oxy Kingpins

By: Jay's Movie Blog


As much as I kind of knew that the guy who I hear opening every all-employee "Town Hall" call at work was going to show up in this movie, it's still awfully dispiriting when your employer's parent company appears prominently in a movie abou...

The Water Man

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Taking a week off for IFFBoston means weekday matinees for other stuff, although it would have been nice to see this with a bigger crowd. I'm curious about David Oyelowo doing a few movies like this in the past couple of years (I was really curious...
