Best Picture (2019) Bam Cinemafest 2019
Filmed at Sam’s annual Oscar party the film cuts parts of his conversations together to form a six minute monolog. The result is very amusing, especially if you know someone who likes to talk about the movies endlessly. At the same time, and the reason I won’t do a formal review is that it also gives a slightly skewed portrait of Sam as a non-stop talker. Having spent time with Sam he does come up for air. The clash between the Sam on screen and in real life has mixed my feeling up enough I don’t want to review it.
On the other hand, because on its own terms it is a really good fictional portrait of a crazed cinema buff I do think you should see it when it plays Sunday with THE HOTTEST AUGUST at Cinemafest
