Movie Diary 8/28/2022

My Old School (Jono McLeod, 2022). Documentary that recalls a flabbergasting true story from 90s Glasgow, the details of which should be left to the movie to unfold. Along with the recollections of some extremely good-humored Glaswegians who were in high school at the time (including the director), Alan Cumming is on hand to lip-sync the dialogue of the central figure in the story, who prefers to stay off camera. Also, Lulu – who does the voice of a teacher in the film’s animated flashbacks – sings the Steely Dan title song, which is something you might not have thought you wanted to hear, but you do. You will not regret watching this.
