The 300 Week 22: Won't You Be My Moviegoing Neighbor?

June 06, 2018 1 min read

Hello, neighbor, welcome back to The 300, a recurring feature on my special attempt to watch 300 movies in theaters in the year 2018. I’ll be watching new releases, classics, and hidden gems to experience the wide world of cinema in all its forms. With so much being watched, there should be something each week that you can also enjoy.

As always, there are three rules for The 300:

  • The movie must be at least 40 minutes long, meeting the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ definition of a feature film.
  • I must watch the movie at a movie theater, screening room, or outdoor screening venue.
  • While I can watch movies I’ve seen before 2018, I cannot count repeated viewings of the same film in 2018 multiple times.

Apart from the first two films—Won’t You Be My Neighbor and First Reformed—this week is mostly comprised of repertory programming, giving me a chance to catch up with classics. Metrograph has programmed an excellent series on Jane Fonda films from the 1970s, and Quad Cinema is currently doing a retrospective on Hammer Studios, that venerable house of British gothic horror. Next week will be focused on more new releases, as I play catch up with two movies that slipped by and catch two big new releases coming out this weekend: Hereditary and Ocean’s 8.

Enough dallying. Let’s trolley into some reviews and thoughts.

And so, onward.
