I Wrote These Things: Weeks Ending 9/23

Guess what? I have a new biweekly limited-run column at Vice, looking back at the amazing movies of the fall of 1997 - and here's the first one, on L.A. Confidential and The Game. 

Also, I wrote this about The Discourse surrounding mother! and Woodshock.

And I reviewed Stronger, which is thankfully better than it looks.

It sure is a big hit! It's fine.

I'm covering The Deuce, heavily, because why wouldn't I? Before its premiere, I did a round-up of true porn stories that I hope they squeeze in. And, thus far, I've recapped episodes one and two.

And there are, of course, BD/DVD/VOD guides for 9/5, 9/12, and 9/19.

And last but not least, I went to TIFF.

For Flavorwire, I did this preview piece, and then daily diaries:

Day 1: The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Roman J. Israel, Esq., Molly’s Game, Brad’s Status, and The Final Year.

Day 2: The Shape of Water, Battle of the Sexes, Novitiate, and Ex Libris: New York Public Library.

Day 3: Hostiles, First Reformed, Euphoria, and Outside In.

Day 4: mother!, Lean on Pete, Who We Are Now, and Super Size Me 2.

Day 5: Disobedience, Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool, and Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood.

And then I did several stand-alone reviews for Pajiba: The Death of Stalin, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, Downsizing, I Love You Daddy, Unicorn Store, and I, Tonya.

And now, TO BED.
