Caroline Golum reviews highlights of the first post-lockdown Nitrate Picture Show, including Detlef Sierck (aka Douglas Sirk)’s Final Chord, Ernst Lubitsch’s Cluny Brown, and Marcel Carné’s Daybreak, plus controversial thoughts about the culinary scene in Rochester, NY. And Maxwell Paparella shouts out BAMCinemaFest highlights including Tyler Taormina’s nocturne Happer’s Comet and Rita Baghdadi’s Middle Eastern metal doc Sirens.
