Hey there gang! Spotlight number 119. Wherein I up periscope, and survey the cinematic landscape to see what might be out there in the land of technicolor and see if we can’t find you something interesting to watch today.
Based on the 1981 non-fiction novel, The Minds of Billy Milligan by Daniel Keyes… led out by Tom Holland and Amanda Seyfriend… The Crowded Room tells the story of Danny Sullivan’s arrest. He was involved in a shooting in 1979, and the show apparently slowly unveils his life through a series of interviews via an interrogator. Danny reveals, bit by bit, the various pivotal moments that led him to that particular situation, and ultimately heads him in a life-altering reveal. The Crowded Room will be available on Apple TV I believe.
A24 never will steer you incorrectly. When in doubt, go A24. This is very, very, solid cinematography advice. Promise. Apparently, You Hurt My Feelings is all about the little white lies we tell our families and ourselves. Oh. OK. … I’m intrigued. Do tell me more.
Transformers Transform. And that is the magic for me. They eee-oooh-wahhhh-aught-aughT! and I could watch that all day long, thank you very much. I’m going to be there with all the proverbial bellage imaginable.
So, since last week, I have learned that Black Mirror, Season 6, is due out on the 15th. But in honor of the esteem with which I hold these episodes in… I will keep telling you about it until it arrives. So the FIFTEENTH IT IS! Cannot wait.
