Ah yes, the great genre* and soundtrack of my teens. Thank you Amy Heckerling <3
*The problematic script is a massive disappointment.
A bold new voice in documentary (if you haven't done so yet, do seek out her other films), Kitty Green's Casting JonBenet delves into the mystery and myth of the famous murder case through interviews with actors and non-actors vying for a role in her film.
A much stronger documentary than Kate Plays Christine, which explored a similar method of storytelling through actor prep, Green's eye for composition and performance, paired with rich subject matter makes for a moving and affecting piece of cinema.
It's a shame I didn't get to see this on the big screen.
