The Movie That Gave Me Pandemic Fatigue & All the Feels, ‘Lovers Rock’

I have two recommendations for you this week, both fitting into this month’s love theme, and I could not be more stoked to talk about them. It seems that lately, I’ve really been digging on Steve McQueen. And just to clarify, I’m talking about the black, British director, not to be confused with the white American actor of the same name. I talked about him before when writing about his film, Mangrove, one of five films in the anthology, Small Axe, and I’m sure it won’t be the last time you hear about him from me, but before I get lost discussing another film in his anthology, I want to recommend something else—a podcast that I’m truly loving right now and have been since it debuted a few months ago called, I Saw What You Did.

Just another movie-obsessed writer with a lot of opinions.
