Soundtracking: Dumplin'

byChris Feil

Much to our surprise whenDumplin' arrived on Netflix last month,the film is stealthily a Dolly Parton jukebox musical.The heartwarming film is a collection of Dolly songs old,new,and (crucially) reimagined,shot straight out of the heart of its heroine.Add in a few appearances by drag queens,and the film is the kind of unassumingly big-hearted self-love anthem to make the music legend proud.

Netflix December: Mowgli,Dumplin',and The Lobster

A belated Streaming Roulette.We forgot to share Netflix's new offerings so here we are a week late,surveying new titles by freeze framing films at random places with the scroll bar and whatever comes up first,that's what we share.No cheating.Whats new on Netflix?Let's see...

I killed your brother.

The Lobster(2015/2016)
"Heartless Woman"absolutely upset me in this movie...but I love the rest of the movie (including that nobody has a name except the main character) which made my top ten list in its year.The Favouriteis my new favorite Yorgos Lanthimos now,though.Which is your favorite of his merciless and haunting but sometimes indelibly funny movies:Dogtooth,Alps,The Lobster,Killing of a Sacred Deer,orThe Favourite?

Related: Remember that great piece Daniel Walber wrote aboutThe Lobster's phony flowers and production design.
