I see where The Hollywood Reporter ran an article saying (much to their sadness) that the era of the independents and the up-and-comers seems to be coming to an end. I think that is correct, but I'd also say that another reason for it is that the Independent circuit was shaken to its core after the #metoo scandal hit in 2017, and it has never recovered.

The late, lovable French New Wave+ filmmaker leaves us a wonderful parting gift with #VardabyAgnes. It documents a recent talk she gave about her life and art with illustrative movie and archive clips, as well as lots of only-by-Agnes kinds of tableaux. Beauty and wisdom abound.

The Atlanta Film Critics Circle (AFCC) has chosen the South Korean drama "Parasite" as its Best Film of 2019.

I can't believe that nearly two months after it's release, this film still isn't showing in the major theaters. I would think that with all the buzz it has generated, it would be showing to a wider market by now.

Just remember that the new "Star Wars" movie will be saturating movie theaters worldwide in a couple of weeks. It's that time of year again, you know.
