It’s a pandemic. Things fall apart, the center cannot hold, you know the drill. Anyway, Happy Valentine’s Day and here are the things I posted last week.
First, here’s Friday’s What to Watch with its bounty of capsule reviews and recommendations. And then you’ll want my full review of Judas and the Black Messiah, one of the best films of this young year, and my web review of Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar, one of the funniest.
What else? There’s some video stuff: My conversations with Saint Maud writer-director Rose Glass and the cast of Workin’ Moms, and some serious praise for Madeleine Sims-Fewer and Dusty Mancinelli’s Violation disguised as a trailer launch.
And then there’s Friday’s episode of NOW What, a conversation about how sex workers are coping with COVID that’s well worth a listen.
I think that’s everything? Unless you haven’t subscribed to the NOW Streaming newsletter, which drops every Saturday and offers a crap-ton of exclusive original content by yours truly.
It’s why I was too busy to build this page on Friday, come to think of it. Well, that and the pandemic.
