I'm checking off two of my most anticipated films for what's left of 2019 from my checklist this week -- tonight I'm seeing Jennifer Kent's Babadook follow-up The Nightingale starring The Fall's Aisling Franciosi as well as this Sam Claflin chap seen here (watch the trailer at this link), and on Thursday it's Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood of course, which I'm currently in the fun process of dodging all spoilers for on Twitter. Fun!
I actually almost had The Nightingale spoiled for me today by of all places the film's press notes sent from its own PR people -- I'm guessing they've gotten some strong reactions due to its well-documented harsh content (recall a critic in Venice getting canned for screaming obscenities at Kent after a screening there) and were just trying to be upfront about triggering folks I guess, but I read a few words more than I wish I would've with regards to that. Oh well. Anyway The Nightingale is out on August 2nd so stay tuned for more, like a for real review and everything, shortly.
