Alright listen this week has been mostly a wash. I know it, you know it, we all know it! I found myself so blown out by all of the film fests lined up one after the other after the other something finally just snapped -- I haven't been able to write a proper word all week, basically. Oh my "Needles of Halloween" series is going okay I s'pose -- check that out here -- and that will keep running through the weekend. But I really needed to write about movies I saw at the Brooklyn Horror Fest and NewFest (not to mention big leftovers from NYFF like Dune and The French Dispatch, which are both in theaters today and both worth your time!) but every time I opened a page to start typing I just sat staring blankly at the emptiness. Oh well. I've been doing this long enough I know there will be weeks like this. Y'all don't hold this mopey self-indulgence against me and I promise I'll be better after a weekend to clear my brain. Okay "promise" is a strong word. I lightly nudge towards the possibility. That's better. Have a good weekend, and if you see something interesting as always tell me about it in the comments, please!
