Samantha Mathis (2018) #video

While I've only seen 66 films at this point, 2018 has been the year of ups and downs as far as movies go, but a new feature, Eighth Grade, has helped me assume that the remaining months might still have some treasures hidden away. While I took a break from the theater and focused mostly on television recently, Bo Burnham's opus of adolescence still managed to shine through the barrage of comic book adaptations that paint the bright lights these days.

Her star quickly rose with the release of 2016’s Below her Mouth, an erotic drama praised by critics for its’ sensitive handling of a lesbian love story and for the employment of the female gaze in its visual exploration of the romance at the heart of the story. Audiences ignorant of the indy film world could be forgiven for thinking that ’16 was the year Mullen exploded onto the scene, but that simply wasn’t the case—the Niagara Falls, Canada native has been quietly making a name for herself since the early 2000's as both an actress and director, churning out multiple films in a variety of genres from comedy to exploitation to horror.
