What am I celebrating this week?
Actually managing to get some work done on the book even while going to a lot of films. Although I have a feeling this weekend is not going to be productive at all in that area because I have two films to see each day and I still need to clean the house and cook and all those other things...
But first, a little recap of the films I've seen since Monday.
Non-Fiction: a French film about a bunch of people working in the publishing industry having affairs with each other. This was very French, but not actually all that interesting.
Vivarium: An Irish film that was part satire about the housing crisis and some of the failed solutions Ireland tried, and part nature documentary. I know it sounds weird, and the film is weird. But it's also really good. Really clever use of sound to keep the atmosphere just that little bit off.
In Fabric: Another peculiar film, this time about a haunted dress and the very odd department store that sells it. I guess this was kind of a horror, but it was also very funny as well as being rather unsettling. Kind of like The Red Shoes, but with a dress....
Mid90s: Jonah Hill's first film as writer-director is set in the mid-90s and follows a group of teenage skateboarders as they create their own messy little family to make up for their own families who failed them. I enjoyed this one, particularly the soundtrack.
I'll catch you up on Monday on the weekend's offerings.
