Jesse Moss talks Mayor Pete

Jesse Moss spoke with Solzy at the Movies last month in Chicago ahead of the world premiere of Mayor Pete in October. While this film takes an intimate look into Pete Buttigieg’s campaign for president, it is not recommended for children. The film is rated R. When you watch the film, you’ll understand why it has this rating. But anyway, there is an intimacy level with now-Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg that you’ve never seen in…

Mayor Pete – Chicago Film Fest 2021

Documentary filmmaker Jesse Moss brings audiences inside Pete Buttigieg’s presidential campaign in the new documentary, Mayor Pete. My first thought upon watching this film is that it’s amazing that Boys State was finishing up while Moss was hard at work on this film. But more than that, it shows the ins and outs of a presidential campaign. We get an inside look at the debate prep that comes with running for president. Getting elected to…

Burning – Toronto 2021

Eva Orner follows the devastating Australian wildfires in Burning and how the government is not willing to address the crisis at hand. The year 2020 brought a whole new meaning to the world being on fire. Heck, 2019 also saw several fires breakout in California. Here in the states, wind conditions brought hazy conditions to states that were nowhere near some of the recent fires. While the US was dealing with fires out west, Australia’s…

Cinderella: Kay Cannon Makes Movie Magic Again

Writer-director Kay Cannon makes movie magic once again with one of the most original takes on Cinderella to hit the big or small screen. Cannon’s take is one that truly subverts everything we know about the fairy tale. Not even Walt Disney would have been able to come up with a take such as this. What Cannon does here is bold and unique. Granted, there wasn’t much of a push for diversity on screen when…

The Tomorrow War Would Make Will Smith Proud

The Tomorrow War might not star Will Smith but this sci-fi action film is in the same vein as previous Independence Day releases. As oddly as it sounds, The Tomorrow War is just the type of escapist entertainment we need coming out on the other side of the pandemic. Time travelers travel back in time from 2051 to disrupt a World Cup soccer game and give Earth an urgent message: a deadly alien species is…
