JoJo Rabbit is getting divisive reviews, which isn't all that surprising. Everyone thinks the two child actors (Roman Griffin Davis and Thomasin McKenzie) are excellent, the rest of the movie depends on the person. Seen multiple comparisons to Grand Budapest Hotel and multiple comparisons to Life is Beautiful...movies that I think handled their tones to VERY different levels of success from each other.

The Slant review encapsulates everything I expected out of the film. The line "It’s a flash of punny bliss in what’s otherwise Marvel Presents Mein Kampf" is especially good for all its snarky glory.
Suspect is hatless! Repeat, hatless!

Daniel Johnston died.

Terribly upsetting. Such a unique musical voice. I met him a few years back at a show of his, passed his prime, but still full of that Johnston heart.

Devastating news. He's a legend.

Alright, got my tickets for the Mill Valley Film Festival today. A couple of things were sold out before my base-tier $80 membership allowed me to buy (namely The Lighthouse and The Irishman, each only having one screening and the former with Robert Pattinson in attendance). Good luck if you're the general public because stuff like opening and closing night centerpiece films are already sold through and we're not even done with the pre-sale. Anyway, here's what I've got coming up October 4th-9th and the 12th:

63 Up (Michael Apted)
Bacurau (Kleber Mendonca Filho & Juliano Dornelles)
Carmilla (Emily Harris)
The Cave (Feras Fayyad)
Clemency (Chinoye Chukwu)
Frankie (Ira Sachs)
The Gasoline Thieves (Edgar Nito)
Jojo Rabbit (Taika Watiti)
The Kingmaker (Lauren Greenfeld)
Knives Out (Rian Johnson)
Marriage Story (Noah Baumbach)
Pain and Glory (Pedro Almodovar)
Parasite (Bong Joon-ho)
Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Celine Sciamma)
Rewind (Sasha Joseph Neulinger)
Synonyms (Nadav Lapid)
The Truth (Hirokazu Kore-eda)
The Two Popes (Fernando Meirelles)
Waves (Trey Edwards Shults)

Out of Competition: Joker (Todd Phillips) (will watch one of the mornings at the festival at a mainstream theater)

I know @BigLargeHuge is going to VIFF, is anyone else going to a festival this year?

I submitted almost the same 50 films as I did last year except for The Informer and Hud which were added, so I replaced them with The Pirate and On Dangerous Ground

The trailer for Todd Haynes' new movie Dark Waters dropped today:

https://youtu.be/RvAOuhyunhY

It doesn't feel particularly...Todd Haynes-y? Very much in the Michael Clayton mold, could be good. I would expect it to debut at AFI Fest (November 14-21), although that's right before it actually comes out (November 22nd).

Mark Ruffalo expanding the DuPont Cinematic Universe. It’s the sequel to Foxcatcher I didn’t know I wanted.

Came here to post this but you guys are already on top of things.

I didn't know this was even coming out this year. Haynes has yet to disappoint, his work ranges from pretty good to masterpiece so I'll certainly check it out.
