Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, August 22, 2021

NYT’s Stephen Holden presents his list of the ten best artsy-yet-fartsy flicks vying for market- and mindshare with this summer’s blockbusters.

And yes, I mark myself as an arthouse goon (again) by confirming that I’ve seen four of them already: Frozen River, Vicky Cristina Barcelona (about which I’m so in accord with Holden’s dislike of the “pompous male narrator” that I went off on it at length), Days and Clouds, and just yesterday, Elegy. Furthermore, I’ve been meaning to catch a fifth one, A Girl Cut in Two, and probably will do so next week.

The rest of the list? I had the opportunity and took a pass on all of them, for various reasons (mainly lack of time). No need to OD on the avant-garde.
