Old Joy/Wendy and Lucy on Monday

by cwellum

On Monday we will publish Caleb’s short piece on two Kelly Reichardt films – Old Joy (2006) and Wendy and Lucy (2008). “American Transients” considers the political, outskirts aesthetic of these important American films, which resist American cinema’s current penchant for nationalist spectacle and hipster whimsy. Check out our “films” page for links to the trailers.
