Uneasy Slumber

An image of Julia Sarah Stone in Come True.Sooo, there’s kind of a weird thematic thing going on this week.

On the latest episode of NOW What, Rad and I expand on his cover story about the pandemic’s affect on people’s existing sleep disorders and insomnia with the help of our mutual friend Alicia Fletcher (and my own years-long experience).

And then, what should be the lead of this week’s What to Watch column but Come True, Anthony Scott Burns’ creepy horror movie where Julia Sarah Stone plays a teenager whose participation in a sleep study turns her waking life into a nightmare?

It’s weird, right? It’s definitely weird.

And speaking of people whose lives are sliding out of balance, the TFCA named Anne at 13,000 Ft. the best Canadian movie of 2020 on Tuesday night, and I wrote about our very first virtual gala at NOW.

That was weird too.

  1. Has anyone ever been nominated for both an Oscar and a Razzie for the same performance before (Glenn Close for Hillbilly Elegy)? If Glenn Close wins as a sort of career award for the times she deserved to win in the past and she wins the Razzie, will she give the same speech for both?

  2. Oh, and even though I’m not sick of hearing Hallelujah (I try hard to avoid hearing any versions except for Leonard Cohen’s and K.D. Lang’s) and like Snyder’s movies better than you do (while not being a slavering superfan), your reworking of Hallelujah’s lyrics was masterful. *applause*
