Co-wrote this film Brody is buzzing….

Richard Brody (@tnyfrontrow), The New Yorker
If nobody was talking about a movie that hasn’t come out yet, who’d have heard of it? (Yogi Berra, film critic: “Nobody’s talking about it anymore, it’s got too much buzz.”) So let’s stick with the pure passion apart from the un-buzz that the question calls for and say that the yet-un-festival-programmed movie I’m most impatient to see this year is “Movie No. 1,” Josephine Decker’s latest, in which Miranda July is one of the actors — two of the most inventive artists of the moment working together, joined by a third, the cinematographer Ashley Connor, a sample of whose singular artistry in this movie July recently tweeted.

And for those who worry that the musical genre, pressed ardently ahead by Spike Lee in “Chi-Raq,” has suffered a grievous setback this year, fear not: “Movie No. 1” includes a production number choreographed by Faye Driscoll. Decker’s short film — also a musical — in “collective:unconscious” was among the cinematic high points of 2016; her originality conveys a sense of fate, in the sense of Robert Bresson, who passed this sentence on artists: they’re people who are unable to do things the way other people do. That’s why I’m so damned impatient to see what she’ll do next.
