    Summer of Soul
    * This was easily the most hyped and successful film/documentary I missed at Sundance ‘21 due to it being completely sold out. This documentary highlights the Harlem Cultural Festival during the summer of 1969. The same year as Woodstock without the same notoriety due to the footage being kept in basement. I am a big Questlove fan and hope he continues to work in film.

    WEREWOLVES WITHIN (Spotlight Narrative World Premiere - Tribeca ’21)
    * This was easily one of my most anticipated films of this years festival by far. I am a huge Sam Richardson fan from Veep, Woke, Promising Young Women (2020) and Super-intelligence (2020). The blend of Comedy, Horror and Mystery tends to be one of my favorites. Milana Vayntrub is stunning and has a lot of potential on film since her AT&T commercials have become stale.
