Speaking to a filmmaker for the second time about their work is always a strange-ish experience, one that I lived through earlier this year with Trey Edward Shults, but I’m not really going to complain about getting to chat up artists like Shults and Sean Baker twice. You might remember that I talked to Baker back in 2015 over his superb film Tangerine. This year, I talked to him about his latest stroke of brilliance, The Florida Project, one of my favorite movies of 2017 and one of the few essential movies of 2017 to boot. You kinda have to see it. If you don’t, I’ll frown at you.
I’ll spare you any further blathering and lead-up and just link the piece, which is up at Thrillist.
