In Case You Missed It: 7/30 - 8/4
It's been another busy week for us over at Viddy Well. Just in case you missed it, here's a rundown of this past weeks articles, reviews and news.
For this week's Sacrilegious Sunday, we posted our review of David Lowery's A Ghost Story, which may very well be our favorite film so far this year. We described it as "a poetic meditation on life, death, love, and loss, a 2001: A Space Odyssey for human existence." It's a genuinely moving and emotionally driven film that we'd encourage you to see. You can read our full review here.
To help combat those Monday blues, we posted Volume 2 of our Workplace Meltdowns series. This time around, it included clips from Scarface, Burn After Reading, and much more. Check out the full article here.
Our review of Mike White and Miguel Arteta's Beatriz At Dinner posted on our social media sites Tuesday, which we thought had a solid first two acts and a disappointing final act. The film has been dubbed "The first great film of the Trumpian era," which it is very Trump based, but isn't exactly the first (nods to Get Out). Check out the full review here.
On Wednesday, our contributors talked about who'd they choose when it comes to killing, marrying, or screwing the following: Harrison Ford, Kurt Russell, or Jeff Bridges. With this contributor's corner post, we welcome newcomers Kie Richardson and Tanner Standridge, as well as the other usual suspects. Full article here.
On Thursday, our review of Kathryn Bigelow's latest film, Detroit, hit our social sites. We were lucky to get into an early release screening for this one, which was a relief because we would've been upset at having to pay $12 for it. Between the shaky camera, the unfocused narrative, and the plethora of creative liberties, we labeled it "a disaster in both a historical and filmic sense." Full review here.
Yesterday marked a pretty busy day for us, we published another article on Oats Studios latest short Kapture: Fluke, an interesting, comedic, entirely CGI piece, which you can read about and watch here. e also celebrated a quirky little fest Midwestern oddity, known as Twins Day, a weekend long festival in Ohio, with our top 5 films involving twins, which you can read up on here.
