Things are tough out there. At least it’s a good time to be going to the movies…
On this episode of Adjust Of Your Tracking, Joe and I gush about two wildly different movies and find solace in simple pleasures, like enjoying weird movie days (Joe explains on the show), the genius of Roger Deakins, and remembering that even played out songs like Kool & The Gang‘s “Celebration” can sound amazing again with just the right amount of cinematic verve thrown over the track.
Though I’ve already talked in depth on The Playlist Podcast about Denis Villeneuve’s decades-later sequel, “Blade Runner 2049,” I just can’t get enough of this movie. And so, we start the show there, with lots of praise for the film’s many strengths while we also lament its weak box office performance last weekend. On the back half of the podcast we also go nuts for Sean Baker‘s “The Florida Project,” a film so teeming with life and infectious energy and truth that it’s almost overwhelming. Except you’re having too much fun while also being deeply moved. It’s another home run for A24, which continues to support superb filmmakers with strong visions and give them a proper home at cinemas. Listen in to hear us blab about these great movies.
