March is nearly over! What the hell!
At least that means we get to talk about this month’s “Films by Women” spotlight, and let me tell you: My feelings about Captain Marvel aside, this month’s a really, really good ‘un. I’m uncertain Two Plans & a Fancy is on anybody’s radar, but it should be; far and away, this is one of the more curious movies I’ve seen this year, and I can’t stress enough how much it made me laugh while furrowing my brow.
Add to that The Brink, a movie I doubt anyone wants to see but which they’ll almost undoubtedly hear about; it’s Steve Bannon being Steve Bannon before Alison “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” Klayman’s camera. Because it’s Bannon, you’ll likely end up seeing spots for it online or listening to people talk about it on the news or the radio. Because it’s Klayman, you won’t have to suffer through spineless depiction of Bannon’s fucking awfulness. She’s smart enough to know that if you want to indict Bannon, you just let him be himself.
Additionally: The Juniper Tree, which you know I love; and Wanda, one of the most essential home video releases of 2019 to date.
