New movie coming up

I don’t want to spend every day wallowing in negativity, so today I’m just going to do a post on something positive. I like small independent filmmakers. I already did a post on Hot Summer Nights a few months ago, but I have to shill it once again. It’s a nostalgic visual spectacle, about two teenage boys who start selling cannabis for a living. The critics were not too kind about it, but they’re wrong, or at least they just review movies by entirely different criteria than I do.

It was the director Elijah Bynum’s debut movie and he hasn’t released any new movies since. Here are two interviews with him, you can see he undersells himself:

Oftentimes, when a debut movie gets poor reviews you never hear anything again from a director. That’s what happened with the guy who did Escape from Tomorrow, a confusing movie I watched about a father who starts hallucinating at Disneyland.

But fortunately as I found out today that’s not the case with Elijah, he returns in 2023, with Magazine Dreams, a story about a black amateur bodybuilder who struggles to find human connection. Do me a favor and go out and watch this one when it’s released, as I want to see this director do more stuff, which is only going to happen if fans like me shill his movies. And if the story of a black amateur bodybuilder doesn’t appeal to you, I can recommend vaping some good Kush to broaden your horizons.

The patients in the mental ward have had their daily dose of xanax and calmed down it seems, so most of your comments should be automatically posted again. Try not to annoy me with your low IQ low status white male theories about the Nazi gas chambers being fake or CO2 being harmless plant food and we can all get along. Have fun!
