Pretend That You Love Me (2020) - Joel Haver
Joel attempts to find a romantic connection while in the development of his next film, all the while dealing with his health and other personal issues.
It's almost impossible to review this without spoiling it. It's a meta-study of grief, and longing delivered with real felt humour and playful storytelling which can knock you on your ass at the drop of a hat and leave you broken.
A phenomenal study of the human heart.

The Last Day of Childhood - Mridul Chibber (2021)
For a kick off, any film that opens with Perfume Genius has got
my attention, and my heart, and this one gets to keep it.
We've all seen films about growing up, about hitting the crest of
that adolescent hill...but how may have we seen made by
someone going through it. Not a glamourised nostalgic look at
it, or one that finds reason or rhyme in those confusing times
