Lucky Grandma

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...

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...

Normally I'd do an "IFFBoston 2019.370"-ish title, but it's a bit too much of a bummer to see the festival in limbo right now even as it's good to see one of last year's titles getting a release. This wasn't particularly high on my priorit...

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 rather than straight Vimeo, which owns them? Vimeo has an app on Roku, so we d...

This Week in (Virtual) Tickets: 13 April 2020 - 19 April 2020

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Another "honestly, what have I actually been doing?" week. It hasn't been as completely quiet as it might look from that sparse page - I've been clearing some stuff off the DVR and catching up on finishing some reviews from the middle o...

Fantasia 2019 Catch-up, Part 4: Dance with Me, Ode to Nothing, Fly Me to the Saitama, L'Intervention, A Good Woman Is Hard to Find, Black Magic for White Boys, The Father's Shadow, and Door Lock

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Yeah, I'm looking at the dates I saw these movies and the dates I've posted full reviews on eFilmCritic and just kind of sighing. Insert the usual comments about how I need to commit to cranking through things faster, not working my day job during t...

The Booksellers

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I made a comment the other day about how the Coolidge, whether by dint of starting ahead of other local theaters or seeming like a slightly larger organization or something else, seemed to have a bit more of a handle on the whole "running a VOD...

This Week in Tickets: 6 April 2020 - 12 April 2020

I really miss movie theaters, guys. Pretty decent run in my living room, though. I mentioned last week that I seemed to have trouble breaking the habit of scrolling through my Twitter feed or whatever during the evening hours, and managed to con...

Saint Frances

By: Jay's Movie Blog


One of the peculiar things about virtual screening rooms like those being run by The Coolidge Corner Theatre and others is that they wind up being pages full of links to other services even if, logically, it seems like they should have some sort of c...

"The Haunted Swordsman" and Bacurau

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Believe it or not, this past weekend would have been the Boston Underground Film Festival, which vanished in a puff when the folks at BUFF and the Brattle recognized that it would not be physical-distancing-friendly at all. It would have been a bumm...

Fantastic Fungi

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Hey, it's a (semi) new release during the pandemic! It's one of two currently playing at the Virtual Coolidge Corner Theatre, and the easiest to watch on my TV - I'd kind of meant to get the Vimeo app downloaded to my Roku anyway. Also, $5, with a...
