Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

The Babadook (2014)
Amelia: Well, I'm not scared.
Samuel: You will be when it eats your insides!

Facebook just alerted me to the fact that I first saw The Babadook three years ago today! (I know, it's a weird thing for Facebook to alert a person to, but at least it's not throwing pictures of my dead relatives at me asking me to celebrate how long we've been Facebook friends for, this time.) Here is the picture I took of director Jennifer Kent at the early US screening, which was part of FSLC's amazing annual "New Directors" series. (Which not coincidentally is going on right now!)

Actually coincidentally though just last week we finally got news on Kent's next film Nightingale, which you can read about right here.  To just say we're looking forward to this movie underestimates the possibility of the word "forward." If when you hear "forward" you picture those star streaks you get jumping into hyper-space in Star Wars, only then are you on the right track...
