Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018)
[#32 in 100 Films in a Year 2020]


The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie is an unappreciated masterpiece
by Karen Han (from Polygon)

I liked LXG (as it was marketed at the time) when it came out. The other people I saw it with agreed with the critics, i.e. that it wasn't very good. I think I rewatched it on DVD at some point and came around a bit to that way of thinking. But I still have kinda-fond memories of it, and this piece (and some of the reaction to it on Twitter) suggests I'm not wholly alone. It also prompted me to the order the Blu-ray (it's going cheap nowadays, of course) to reassess.
