Watched Journal: May 2021



What I watched in May.

Two of the best films I watched this month ("Smile", "Alphabet City") were new blu-ray releases from upstart boutique label, Fun City Editions, who have been uncovering forgotten gems. They are prepping a release of the Jeff Bridges, Sam Waterston neo-western hang-out from Frank Perry, "Rancho Deluxe" (which you can currently stream for free on Tubi). I highly recommend checking FCE out. It's like if Twilight Time had awesome packaging, restorations and special features - with better pricing to boot (they are partnered with Vinegar Syndrome).
