Soundtracking:Southland Tales

"If you'll pardon the bluntness,I am still convinced that Richard Kelly was masturbating the entire time he was filming this movie."-PoliVamp

"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

CONSIDER - Actresses of 2019,First Half

Here's our penultimate 'halfway mark,year in review' post for you.The19 performances by actresses we treasured most at the moviesthus farthis year.

We hope you'll sound off on these and share your own favourites in the comments...and we hope this list serves as a reminder to Oscar and Globe and SAG voters to keep lists of things that impress you all year so that at the end of the year you aren't just voting for the 5 things youjustsaw.Before we begin I should note that I sadly missed the three following female-led films and will catch up with them when given the chance later in the year:Her Smell,Little,andThe Souvenir.Okay here we go...

(Jan 1st - June 28th releases)

Jessie Buckley as "Rose-Lynn"inWild Rose
Yes,the movie basically hands her the "star-making"reviews on a platter.It's ALL about watching her sing and emote.But the performance has lovely nuances,lived-in feeling,and own-worst-enemy fire.And that voice.Good god.

Streaming Roulette,July: Reese doesn't live under the silver lake anymore

As is our practice we've selected 8-10 titles and frozen the films at utterly random moments without cheating (whatever comes up comes up!).It's our way of previewing new titles streaming in the first half ofJULY2019.(★ means we recommend catching them.) Please do let us know if you're dying to discuss any of the films and maybe we'll write about them.

Ready?Let's go...

Why did I get stuck with the janky old broke hobo Spider-Man?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse(2018) on Netflix ★
Watched this again on a whim with a friend who was curious because it won the Oscar.He's not into animated movies or superhero movies and he totally enjoyed it.Thus are its many inventive delights.It really holds up to viewing number two.Jam-packed with details you can easily miss on the first round.

Tribeca: Mary Kay Place leads "Diane"

Tribeca has ended but we have a few more movies to talk about.Here's byJason Adamswith a movie to keep your eye out for...

Why is it so hard to describe why Kent Jones'Dianeworks so well?Twice just after seeing it I stumbled trying to do so.Just laying down the plot is insufficienct.It's about an older woman in a small town whose son is a drug addict and whose cousin is sick with cancer.But that makes it sound like something Lifetime coughed up.So you've gotta start with Diane herself.Veteran character actress Mary Kay Place plays her,and already you can feel it.The no-nonsense lived-in vibe of it.The wood grain.Just keep going from there...
