Sometimes a person needs a dramatic occasion to shake them from their daily routine.
My daily routine no longer listed writing.
Writing, I thought, was in the past. And not necessarily by choice, but like any “hobby” or non-work job, my writing practice began fading away when faced with long drives home in traffic and working in other fields.
I am never disappointed in the quality of films that A24 produces.
In the few A24 films I’ve seen in the past year, I have not been disappointed. Lady Bird evoked nostalgia and teenage boredom and angst (better than the film adaptation of Perks of Being a Wallflower, honestly). A Ghost Story took a more universal approach, making the viewer consider their place in time, and the desperation that follows you throughout your own.
The Florida Project, a member of the A24 film canon, conjured a totally different set of feelings.
