Robert Pattinson on Body Image; Daisy Ridley on Dying; Missing in Action; Little Richard Revisited

In today's Movie News Rundown: Robert Pattinson feels body pressure, too; Daisy Ridley dwells on death at Sundance; another Sundance doc examines the queer majesty of Little Richard.


Out Today: Missing, an astonishing thriller that unfolds entirely on phone and computer screens. Storm Reid plays a teenager who needs to track down her mother (Nia Long) after she goes missing on a trip to Colombia with her new boyfriend (Ken Leung.) It's a loose sequel to the also excellent 2018 screen thriller Searching. You can listen to my talk with creators Aneesh Chaganty, Sev Ohanian and Natalie Qasabian on Google or Apple or Spotify or here.


Sundance Begins: We were impressed by the premiere-night documentary Little Richard: I Am Everything, which atomizes any notion of the "Tutti Frutti" singer as a safe, cuddly nostalgia act and presents him as wildly transgressive. It reframes him as a queer icon without reducing him to any one thing, and explains why his flamboyance may actually have made him more acceptable to white audiences. Highly recommended.


Daisy Ridley: Margeaux Sippell is in Park City for Sundance, and covered this Q&A with Daisy Ridley about her new film Sometimes I Think About Dying. Ridley produces and stars in the film about an office worker who passes her cubicle days away imagining herself in various death scenarios.


Congratulations, Santa Fe and Atlanta: Everyone has seen our new list of the Best Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker, right?
