Reverse Shot Happy Hour: Family

May 22, 2020

In 2020, during the first year of the pandemic, Reverse Shot editors Michael Koresky and Jeff Reichert and longtime contributor Farihah Zaman hosted a weekly Happy Hour—an online hangout for informal discussions about the state of cinema, criticism, and culture. BYOB. This week’s guests include filmmaker Ari Aster (Midsommar, Hereditary) and Film Comment assistant editor and RS contributor Devika Girish. Following the theme of “family,” they talk about The Sopranos, To Sleep with Anger, An American Family, the Michael Jordan documentary The Last Dance, Mike Leigh’s Another Year, the upcoming “virtual cinema” release of Spencer Nakasako’s Kelly Loves Tony (from Sentient.Art.Film), and more.

Reverse Shot is an online film criticism magazine published by Museum of the Moving Image.
