Films We Love
When we really love a film, we dedicate multiple pieces to it, including interviews, essays, and podcast episodes.
We loved these films so much, we dedicated 5+ articles to them.
Set in the 1980s, The Souvenir tells the story of a film student who gets into a difficult romantic relationship that simultaneously feeds her creativity and shakes her self-confidence. Based on Hogg’s personal experiences as a film student, it even features an exact replica of the apartment she lived in at the time. We wrote a book about the film
A Closer Look
Films we loved so much, we dedicated at least two different pieces — written or podcast — to them.
The best movie of 2019, Mouthpiece, is Canadian, set in Toronto, and written and directed by women and about women. The film’s innovative conceit is that the main character, thirty-something Torontonian Cassandra, is simultaneously played by two actors, Nostbakken and Sadava. This dual performance, where the actors sometimes mirror each other and sometimes diverge or even conflict, allows them to represent two sides of a complex woman who is constantly in conflict with herself.
