Best dating movies of 2016s
Dustin Guy Defa’s new feature, “Person to Person” (also premièring next month at Sundance), stars Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Philip Baker Hall, Olivia Luccardi, and Isiah Whitlock, Jr., along with Tavi Gevinson and actors known mainly for independent films, such as Bene Coopersmith and Buddy Duress. 1,” stars Molly Parker and Miranda July, who, in 2011, made her film “The Future” with Hamish Linklater as her co-star.Most of these actors make their living from Hollywood movies or television series, which frees them up to take on projects made on a very low budget. Hollywood and independent filmmaking have engaged in an important division of labor: Hollywood specializes in making money, the independents specialize in making movies.It’s a critic’s job to say, when necessary, that some movies being made widely available and being widely promoted—and sometimes even widely praised—are not good at all, and that some of the best movies being made might take a viewer a little work to find.It doesn’t matter that an overwhelming majority of viewers may never find many of the best movies in their local theatres—because they can find many of them streaming at home.“Sully” proved to be very popular, and very successful; it didn’t change the political landscape at all.That’s one reason that the usual run of overtly political movies, in which the liberal consensus finds itself reflected back upon itself with confident self-satisfaction, strikes me as both an aesthetic regression and a political frivolity.Many independent filmmakers who started out with their own money and that of friends and family are now working with Hollywood without actually being a part of it.
comedies for children, superhero movies, sci-fi apocalypses, and other popular genres, the big studios channel some of those funds into movies by Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola, Spike Lee, Martin Scorsese, James Gray, and other worthies.It’s a commonplace to wring hands on the subject of how bad Hollywood has become, but it’s more than counterbalanced by how good independent films have become.And yet, the critic on my shoulder whispers, whereas everyone goes to the local multiplex to see studio movies, how many people ever see those independent films? What matters is what excites a viewer, what excites a critic.At least that’s what happens to Debra Winger and Tracy Letts’s cheating married couple, Mary and Michael, in Azazel Jacobs’s phenomenally scored film. The gist: sous-chef Gu Shengnan and bigwig prick Lu Jin hate each other...until they don’t.

It takes in huge amounts of money from the sale of mass-market commodities and cleanses some of it with the production of cinematic masterworks. There used to be more of an overlap, both before the age of television, when Hollywood was the only audiovisual game around, and in the age of television, when Hollywood was still the prime source of feature films.
