Fantasia 2019.08: Maggie, No Mercy, and Knives and Skin

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Short day, but one with guests aplenty! First up, director Yi Okseop and co-writer/co-producer/co-star Koo Gyo-Hwan of Maggie, which was interesting in part because it was funded as part of a program that has a yearly theme, this year's being &quo...

Fantasia 2019.06: Porno, Mystery of the Night, Idol, and We Are Little Zombies

By: Jay's Movie Blog


The original plan was to start Tuesday later, but I opted to actually get some sleep on Saturday. Fortunately, the gang from Porno stuck around: That's director Keola Racela, writers Matt Black & Laurence Vannicelli, producer Chris Cole, and...

Fantasia 2019.05: Dreamland, Chiwawa, G Affairs, and Darlin'

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I left after doing some work this morning to have my company laptop say it had 27 updates to install when I shut it down. I hope that wasn't a complete mess with how my laptop will sometimes just decide not to see the internet via wifi every once in...

Fantasia 2019.04: The Wonderland, Hit-and-Run Squad, Paradise Hills, and Astronaut PLUS The White Storm 2: Drug Lords

By: Jay's Movie Blog


This long day at the movies was brought to you by hunger and caffeine. The hunger comes from not having breakfast stuff in the hotel room and writing until something like five minutes before the first movie of the day started (perks of staying in a...

Fantasia 2019.02: The Deeper You Dig, His Bad Blood, and Vivarium

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I kind of feel like I should apologize to filmmakers for days like Friday, when the way I got up early the previous day leaves me feeling worn down and I just can't make it through a couple of matinees, and a couple of independent films that could pr...

Fantasia 2019.01: Swallow and The Art of Self-Defense

By: Jay's Movie Blog


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


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...

This Week in Tickets: 17 June 2019 - 7 July 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog


So, about a year ago, Major League Baseball announced the Red Sox and Yankees would play a series in London, I registered to buy tickets as a season ticket-holder, got a chance to buy them in December, and then set my vacation time up. I didn't exac...

IFFBoston 2019.07: The Farewell

By: Jay's Movie Blog


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...

The Last Black Man in San Francisco

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I like the heck out of San Francisco, even if it does get unreasonably chilly at night even in July, and it kind of makes me sad to know that, given that it has an even more insane real estate situation than Boston, it would be almost impossible for...

Friday Double Feature: The Spy Behind Home Plate & The Third Wife

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Not a real problem: Having so little time between returning from a baseball-inspired vacation and leaving for a three-week film festival, with a family barbecue in between, that you despair of how you're going to fit all the movies you want to see i...

Boston Underground Film Festival 2019.05: Assassinaut, A Lot Like Life, Canary, Happy Face, and The Unthinkable

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Will not go crazy with the shorts like I did in the last BUFF post. Will not! (Did) First up, the crew from Assassinaut, who made what was often a very impressive little movie although they occasionally confessed to winging it or putting a bit i...

Late Night

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I swear, I was working at two words a night writing this, hoping to get just a little bit more done before bed while on vacation and just getting a very little bit more done. Which, I suppose, is fitting; it didn't have a big impact on me and maybe...

This Week in Tickets: 10 June 2019 - 16 June 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Weather both nice and bad kept the moviegoing to a minimum this week.. But first, two ballgames which did not go great - on Monday, the Red Sox coughed it up in the 9th, leading to extra innings and eventually losing it in the 11th. Unlike the l...

This Week in Tickets: 3 June 2019 - 9 June 2019

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Nothing better than living in Noir City for the weekend. Well, sort of. An actual noir city would be a dangerous place where you can't trust anyone and life is cheap, but the Brattle when they're showing noirs all weekend is pretty nice. The we...
