    Bummer.
    Yeah. And there's only one non-AMC or Regal theater in my town, so it might not play here. For about three days it was on the lineup for a festival I'm going to in a couple of weeks but then it got taken off. Womp womp.

    Will have to be a Alamo/Landmark type of theater. If Roma played around you, it'll be that theater.

    I just hope there's an intermission.

    Strong reactions so far, including from legit critics. And Al Pacino seems to be *THE* consensus MVP across the board here.

    I was worried there for awhile because all the talk had been about high budgets and "de-aging" technology, but I'm officially pumped now.

    (I'm also relieved that I'll see this next month instead of having to wait 6-8 months or a full fucking year as is typical with festival movies.)

    Big ups to the Charlotte Film Society: They're screening it in a real-live theater for three days in December (DCP, not just playing Netflix off a projector). It's a Christmas miracle!

    What’s with Joe Pesci in that video?

    Why did he even show up if he didn’t want to talk?

    Probably because it's specified on his contract with the studio, like every actor who does public relations.

    After Silence getting the shrug treatment, I'm ready for Scorsese to get Netflix-level marketing money and be back big time in the awards game again. Sure, 3.5 hours long, but after what they've accomplished with Roma I'm sure Netflix can manage anything.

    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5

    Great trailer and probably reflects the film best so far.
