Showing Up (2022, Kelly Reichardt)

Michelle Williams is prepping sculptures for a small solo show, encounters fellow artists and workers and family members, and comes off as the most unhappy person in the movie. The camera is mobile from the opening titles on, roving around, reframing and refocusing. Not as much of Andre 3000’s flute as I’d hoped for. Hong Chau (who we saw the day before in Asteroid City) is neighbor/friend/landlord/rival, and First Cow‘s John Magaro is her brother who everyone’s worried about. Also feat. Todd-o-Phonic Todd as the Portland version of himself.
