Coming Soon to Much Ado About Cinema

Happy hot girl summer everyone! After spending a rocky awards season (remember that only a few months ago?) and a even rockier school/work season, we’re finally back on our feet to create some new and wonderful content for our Patreon. As you may know, Much Ado About Cinema is volunteer run and no one at our team from Editor-in-Chief to Staff Writer earns any money. We rely heavily on the money we gain from our Patreon to run the website. Our hope is that in the future we’ll save enough money to pay our writers. So far we’ve been offering early access to our videos and podcasts on top of our Patreon exclusive podcast, “Chatter,” to our patrons but we’ve been a lacking on the writing side. Well not anymore! Starting in August we have three wonderful columns and a new podcast for our patrons. All these new additions will be available to different tiers on our Patreon in addition to early access and “Chatter.” Keep reading to find out more about the new additions to Much Ado About Cinema and click here to join our Patreon.

Criterion Reviews: ‘Chungking Express’

I was just getting into films, my experience with cinema was limited to mainstream Hollywood films and I had never seen anything like Chungking Express. I restarted my computer twice because I was sure the frame rate was my computer’s fault and not part of the film. Coming back to it years later with an appreciation for Wong Kar-wai’s other films and fresh eyes feels wonderful.
