: I really like this film! A lot of films released during this narrow time period—say 1997-2001—aren’t terrible visible these days, casualties as they are of the various format and streaming wars. These films slightly preceded the Great DVD Era
, when people in their millions would buy up copies of anything that reviewed fairly well—see, I dunno, Sideways
, Little Miss Sunshine
, Garden State
or any of the many others that instantly remind you of seeing dozens of copies in HMV’s ‘3 for a Tenner’ racks during the mid-aughts. And they aren’t usually the sort of thing that works well on Netflix given that their library is ever-shrinking in terms of number of titles and window of production—nostalgia is a big business, but my nostalgia is not the same as that of the median Netflix subscriber. (Give us The Ice Storm
, the ultimate ‘lost’ 1997 film, you cowards.)
My style guide hill to die on: Film titles should be set in italics not all caps.
