Nathaniel Gives Thanks

Team Experience members were invited to give thanks this week so you'll be hearing from a few of us.Here's your hostNathaniel R...

2018 was an unusually hard year for your host,given that he wasstarting over in his offline lifeafter a painful breakup so first things first.I'm so goddamn grateful for The Film Experience.亚博主页Thank YOU all for reading (especially those who donate to keep us on life support- see sidebar) and for being such a faithful community.This labor of love site is a continual source of pleasure and stability for me personally and I always aim to make it so for you,too.Before I get to the individual entertainment gratitude I also want to thank the Team Experience regulars: Murtada,Chris,Jason,Glenn,Jorge,Lynn,Eric,Dancin' Dan,Spencer,John & Matthew,and those we don't hear from much at the moment (life issorude like that) but who we're always happy to work with like Nick,Ilich,Salim,Tim,Deborah,Séan,Daniel,Ben,Katey,and Joe.And both warm hugs to those who've moved on and nervous waving at those yet to come;they're out there somewhere and must make themselves known soon!

I will now attempt to give entertainment thanks without completely repeating my esteemed colleaguesin their fun postseven though I love several of the movies they already spoke of.Okay in 2018 I was ever so grateful for:


• The continual shapeshifting ofA Simple Favorfrom comedy to noir to mystery to camp spectacle to romcom to satire.It was such a great film to take friends to since it was so funny and surprising and memorable with it genre juggling.And Blake Lively's ultra modern wardrobe paired with Old Hollywood star charisma was something else...

Gotham Nominations: "The Favourite"and "First Reformed" Lead

by Nathaniel R

It's the first official awards announcement of the season!The Gotham Awards,the East Coast's answer to the Independent Spirit Awards,have announced their nominations with the palace intrigue tragicomedyThe Favouriteand the existential heavy drama ofFirst Reformedsharing the lead with 3 matching honors each: Best Feature,Best Screenplay,and one acting citation (a special ensemble prize for the former and Ethan Hawke for the latter).One assumes that they'd have both been nominated for director,too,but one of the quirks of Gotham is that they don't have a Director category,only a category for brand new directors and we love the nominees there,especially Bo Burnham forEighth Gradeand Ari Aster forHereditary.

Other films receiving much needed good news since they were released before the fall glut and needed awards bodies to be reminded of them over the next few months:Leave No Trace,The Wife,Sorry to Bother You,andThe Rider.The complete nominations and a few more comments after the jump...
