2018 Favourites: Shorts & TV

Favourite Shorts of 2018:

1. Me the Terrible (2012, Josephine Decker)
Decker also made my top-5 new movies and top-10 recent movies lists, so is probably the discovery of the year.

2. Bao (2018, Domee Shi)

3. The Burden (2017, Niki Lindroth Von Bahr) (oops, forgot to write this up)

4. The Stranger and Six Cents in the Pocket (Ricky D’Ambrose)

5. Winnie-the-Pooh and Winnie-the-Pooh Pays a Visit (Fyodor Khitruk)

6. Heat of a Thousand Suns (1965, Pierre Kast)

7. Blanket Statement No. 1 & 2 and Curses (Jodie Mack)

8. Muta (2011, Lucrecia Martel)

9. Love’s Refrain (2016, Paul Clipson)

10. Pure Flix and Chill (2018, Anthony Simon)

Favourite TV Shows of 2018:

I still can’t talk to anyone about TV shows because I like to catch up with four-year-old seasons of comedies while everyone else is watching the very latest dramas – even in Atlanta where Dream Corp LLC billboards float above Ponce and the Connector, I get oblivious frowns when I mention the show.
