Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood (2022, dir. Richard Linklater)

The imaginative son of a NASA administrator reminiscences about his late-1960s Florida suburban childhood. Gentle, charming, if slight rotoscoped semi-autobiographical movie. The space mission stuff is pretty much simply a hook to hang the nostalgia on. Not that this is a bad thing in this case. Recommended.

Here’s the trailer.

Mercy Black (2019, dir. Owen Egerton)

A newly-released former psychiatric patient comes to believe her childhood phantom is real. Straightforward autumnal horror with folk, invented mythos and viral sensation aspects. Some good ideas, not all of them given their due, though twists are piled on for their own sake in Act 3.
