November Digest: New Films, Old Films, Good Films, Kingsman

As November staggers to its close, amid an endless avalanche of horrific revelations about terrible men and also whatever calamitous idiocy the U.S. President committed while I was literally writing this sentence, some things are still good. Twin Peaks! Everyone likes Twin Peaks. Guy Maddin’s hockey enthusiasm. Nick and Nora goddamn Charles. We hold tight to these and other bright spots — along with their shadowy, Kingsman-and-SacredDeer-clad doubles, always on hand to remind us why we can’t have only nice things — presented here in digest form!

Here’s the monthly wrap. Thanks for reading! And, as the header image hopefully demonstrates, there’ll be more to come in December — your counter-programmings, your Liz & Rick Story Time Hours, your furry-themed holiday celebrations, your yearly retrospectives and #52FilmsByWomen and random asides about things that struck us at the very last moment before we were preparing to hit “publish.” All kinds of things! Stay tuned.
