Netflix is doing well with Clooney… we guess. Richard Donner, who is 90, says he’s coming back for LW5. Shadow in the Clouds and other YA stuff, plus a digression on the works of Leigh Bardugo. The Human Voice. Letterboxd Year-In-Review. Plus three trailers, Flickchart re-ranking, and a list of films that center on missing spouses!

Happy new year, everyone!
