For our first COVID-19-era Lightbox retrospective episode, we look at the enigmatic cinema of Angela Schanelec. We focus on her two most recent films, THE DREAMED PATH (2016) and I WAS AT HOME, BUT... (2019). Then, in our final, presciently-named Fear and Moviegoing in Toronto segment for “the duration”, it's the last Bressons of TIFF's anniversary retrospective that we were able to see (LANCELOT DU LAC, A GENTLE WOMAN, and his only (?) comedy, FOUR NIGHTS OF A DREAMER), plus we celebrate the emotional generosity of Coppola's PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED.
