This week’s new releases don’t bring much to look forward to. And I wanted to quickly mention the giant backlog of work I’ve been working on since September of last year (!). I haven’t mentioned it in a while, but it still hasn’t been finished. And the recently completed TIFF has made things much worse, so if you’ve written an article that hasn’t been added to the site yet, and especially if it was published this month, there’s a good chance I haven’t added it only because I’m still catching up on so many other things at the moment.
On to the stats.

Garbage Time is an irregular section of this stats column that looks at movies that, for multiple reasons starting with the mostly negative reviews, were deemed unsuitable for the homepage but nevertheless might still be of some interest to cinephiles.
Chronic (Michel Franco)

Metacritic: 68 • 16 reviews
Critics Round Up: 53 • 16 reviews
