Walking After "Midnight."


Alex Holdridge's In Search of a Midnight Kiss would play really well on a double bill with Barry Jenkins' Medicine for Melancholy. Both films contrast an urban California setting with the philosophical musings of two young lovers as they wander through the evocative landscapes. And both films are very funny, but quite true to life. So it's only appropriate that both films found homes at IFC, extending their reach in such a way that hopefully benefits the rising careers of their makers. In the case of Midnight Kiss, which opens this week, Holdridge is finally receiving recognition that's long overdue. I elaborate in a feature for indieWIRE.
