Nobody ever gets sick of list-writing exercises or year-end reminiscences, so here’s a double dose from Movie Mezzanine, where I wrote about the 2016 film that’s most likely to inspire future filmmakers (Moonlight), and my favorite older discovery made during the year, The Executioner.
I can’t stop writing about year-end stuff! And there’s more year-end stuff to come! Unsatisfied with writing about the performances I wrote about for that other “best performances” feature, I decided to write about five more performances for Paste Magazine’s own “best performances” feature. I I think I totally crushed it. You tell me.
…hey, how about that, another year end list, whaddya know. 2016 is a big documentary year, as in “there are a lot of great documentaries that came out this year.” I wrote about Ava DuVernay’s 13th, and Kirsten Johnson’s Cameraperson, two fundamentally unalike films that remain among the year’s best documentary offerings, for The Playlist.
