Yeah, so we’re back sooner than we thought.
We here at We Talk About Movies are planning to hold a movie blogathon of one of the most underrated directors working today – Thomas McCarthy. Aside from being a director, he is also an actor who has appeared in TV shows like The Wire and Boston Public, and films like 2012 and The Lovely Bones. So far, he has only written and directed three movies, all of which we plan to watch in the coming weeks.
Personally, I thought that Win Win was one of the best movies last year and it just flew under most people’s radars. I haven’t seen his two other movies but I have a feeling that they’ll be as good.
I’d also like to welcome Jude Defensor to our team. Jude is one of the most opinionated cinephiles I know, so his addition should spice up our future conversations. He will be joining us for this marathon.
Below is the schedule of when the first post for each movie will be up. I hope you all join us and comment about his films as well!
