Start Slow January 6, 2018

The first week of January is reliably one of the slowest times of the year for new releases, but below this intro there are at least two movies that are of interest. (The third film, In the Fade, opened last week.)

This week also brings the first CRU page for a VR project. And although I admit I’m an Iñárritu fan, I do wish the first VR work we’ve covered here wasn’t created by someone whose reputation is in the toilet within hardcore cinephile culture. A complete unknown would’ve been preferable.
