This Week in Tickets: 6 February 2023 - 12 February 2023 (Staying In Edition)

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Very short week for, uh, reasons. So, remember last week, when pipes in my walls burst? Well, my landlord wasn't able to get my shower put together until Tuesday, so I kind of stayed away from theaters early in the week out of deference to folks...

Fantasia 2022.19: "Love You, Mama", The Protector, Convenience Story, and Alienoid

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Monday, the third week. I'm not saying it was just the locals and me at this point, but it was getting close. Somehow got out of work early enough to make a 12:30pm show in de Seve, which apparently had filmmakers and other guests for its first sho...

Fantasia 2022.17: Island of Lost Girls, The Pass: Last Days of the Samurai, Circo Animato, "The Cradle", Sadako DX, and Missing

By: Jay's Movie Blog


I'm mildly surprised that the Schmidt family didn't make it to Montreal for Island of Lost Girls on Saturday morning. I imagine that Covid throws a wrench in that sort of thing, but I also suspect that if I'd somehow made a film with my family like...

Fantasia 2022.15: "Flames", Out in the Ring, Freaks Out, and DJ XL5's Ultimate Zappin' Party.

By: Jay's Movie Blog


End of an era with the final Zappin Party. But first... First up, we've got Bertrand Hebert and Out in the Ring director Ryan Bruce Levy. There were apparently a lot more people in town to support the documentary on Tuesday, but they're pro wres...

Fantasia 2022.13: "The Astronaut and His Parrot", Rani Rani Rani, Chorokbam, Shari, "Ronde de Nuit", Maigret, "Blackbear", Resurrection

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Folks, Marc Lamothe was pretty excited to welcome Patrice Leconte (l) to Montreal for this screening of Maigret. I could only extract a little bit from the Q&A, because it was pretty much entirely in French, and, ironically enough, I tapped ou...

Fantasia 2022.05: My Small Land, "Everything at Once", Next Exit, "Where the Witch Lives", and Dark Nature

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Got some days with weird gaps in the middle coming up that I probably could have filled, but in this case, I figured I might as well get some grocery shopping done after My Small World, just for breakfast stuff, because starting the day with just an...

Fantasia 2022.01: Polaris and Special Delivery

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Greetings from Montreal! I can't say it's like nothing's changed in the past three years, because I flew up rather than taking the bus (Greyhound has cut 75% of their direct service between Boston and Montreal and who wants to spend 8 hours in a bus...

BUFF 2022.05: "Inbetween Days", Neptune Frost, Medusa, and Hatching

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Meet the team running things! Once again, because this is the tightest-scheduled festival you will ever see and (presumably) because of covid concerns, there was no Q&A in the theater for the animation package, but if you've got questions, the...

BUFF 2022.02-03: Honeycomb, The Innocents and Nitram

By: Jay's Movie Blog


Check it out - guests (with programmer Nicole McControversey)! I think writer/director Avalon Fast (center) and co-star/etc.Henry Gillespie-Graham (left) were the only filmmakers for a feature to visit, and almost certainly the only non-local ones...

Short Stuff: The 2021 Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

By: Jay's Movie Blog


One of the odder effects of Disney moving all of their Pixar releases to their streaming service during the pandemic is that no short films have accompanied them into theaters, meaning that the "Best Animated Short Film" category lacks an o...



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 2021.00-01: Kratt, Not Quite Dead Yet, Paul Dood's Deadly Lunch Break, Satoshi Kon: The Illusionist, and Brain Freeze

By: Jay's Movie Blog


In a typical year, I'm taking a bunch of time off work and heading up to Montreal for most of July, which means that going down to New York for a weekend beforehand is kind of hard to justify, although that hasn't stopped me in the past. Last year w...
