    Slant Review (Kinda gives away some of the behind the scenes stuff)
    Quasi-documentary getting pretty great reviews. Their other films, 45365 (Free on Vimeo) and Tchoupitoulas (available on Criterion) also got some good writeups. I'm excited to watch this one!

    I watched Tchoupitoulas last night. It was pretty good. They're doing some interesting stuff in terms of narrative vs. straight documentary.

    Talked to a friend today, he says this is his favorite of the year. I'll probably check it out tomorrow.

    One of the most resonant movie experiences I've had this year. Poetic, melancholy cinema. Loved the colors and the intimacy of the cinematography.

    Surprised at how cool critics are on it. From reading it seems most have a feeling of "Yeah the movie is good and the process is unique but it's not good enough fiction to be good fiction or real enough to be good documentary" but I disagree, I think it found a very special, authentic mood. It's a truthful, humanistic portrait. Sparse, but full.

    I mean, it was Slant’s #1 film of 2020.

    I didn’t look hard, just saw a couple critics I like with average scores. That’s cool, it’s really good.

    This was truly an incredibly experience. I don't think I've seen a movie quite like this, probably my second favorite of the year .

    The fact that this was made exactly when it was is nothing short of Kismet. From the Roaring 20s name to the conversations and hints at impending doom throughout the film, the overarching sense of finality and uncertainty that bogs down most of the characters in this is so prescient of what was to come in 2020. Bars like this are shut down, some forever. Where do these people go? What homes do they have? Who are they with right now? At 4am tonight? Speakeasies are making a comeback, at least in the areas of the city that welcome motley crews like this. Do the old regulars get the message passed on to them? Did someone make them aware of the back entrance?

    This was good. Bars are increasingly replacing the church as the American place of community. Restaurants don't want you to linger and the workplace is full of forced relationships; the bar is the new place of worship.

    The pandemic has made it much more enjoyable to watch movies of people just talking and sharing experiences. It is the side effect of isolation.

    This movie is like a Black Lodge version of Lovers Rock
