This Week in Rankings

Since the last rankings update I wrote about Bi Gan’s Long Day’s Journey into Night over at The Chinese Cinema and Shunji Iwai’s Last Letter at Mubi. Over at Seattle Screen Scene I reviewed Frederick Wiseman’s Monrovia, Indiana, Naoko Yamada’s Liz and the Blue Bird, Kim Sunghoon’s Rampant, John Carpenter’s The Fog, and RaMell Ross’s Hale County This Morning, This Evening. Over at Frame.land I contributed a review of Raymond Bernard’s Wooden Crosses
