i went to see medicine for melancholy last night at the northwest film forum. the movie, directed by barry jenkins, is dialogue heavy, for sure, as it follows two african american 20somethings the morning after in san francisco. i thought it was stunning & capturing. everything from the cinematography (high saturation with a fantastic color correction in post production) to the music, the acting to the conversation - it had me.
we were lucky enough to have jenkins at the show with us & had the chance for q&a following the film. read paul constant's review at the stranger & see the trailer here - i encourage all of you to see it, go - go now & see it. it's here til monday.
