We have several reviews today out of the always stellar Independent Film Festival of Boston, but it feels kind of weird — even for a pop culture site — to completely ignore an important moment in American (and global) history. I’d considered an SRL — greatest military victories in film or the ten most satisfying mass murderer deaths in film — but I’d hate to reduce the moment so something so flip. Even Seth Meyers’ exceptional take down of Donald Trump at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner seems distant (but still exceptionally satisfying). Most folks are probably on CNN or The New York Times or your various political opinion websites today — as you should be — but if you stop by here, I’d be remiss if we didn’t at least give you a space to share in the news, enjoy in this moment of Unity before we start criticizing films (and each other) again.
Give it up for the troops, folks. Let’s see if we can carry this positive energy at least until the afternoon. And this may be the only day in American history when this feels truly appropriate, but fuck it: I think it’s OK for a day to indulge in our inner shit-kicker. Regrets are for Tuesdays.
