The British movie "The Souvenir" is probably the best movie this year so far. A young woman is passionately in love with the idea of movie-making and is applying herself diligently to that task while being in a relationship with a somewhat patronizing and exploitative young man. The young lady is played exquisitely by Honor Swinton Byrne. Her mother is played by her real-life mother Tilda Swinton. Joanna Hogg's direction is a veritable tour de force. The only word for it is 'perfection'.

They're already shooting a sequel....

Weirdly, it's released here in the US in May, but the UK won't see it until August. What part of "British movie" do the distributors not understand??

Ava DuVernay's "When They See Us" on Netflix is a superb dramatization of the Central Park Five story of false incrimination of five black and Hispanic boys by New York City's authorities in 1989. It comes across as a gut-punch.

Two women responsible for the miscarriage of justice, one the Assistant District Attorney and the other the chief investigator, are now being shamed and have lost some of their important positions. A third culprit still goes unpunished. He spent $86000 putting full-page advertisements in newspapers demanding death penalties for these boys and he persisted in holding them guilty even after they were found to be innocent and released. Yes, that was our present President. But then he never gets punished for any of his misdeeds!
