The Best Movies You Haven't Seen (2016)

PopGap #18: Movie Slot Machine Speed Round!

The Movie Slot Machine Speed Round: 100 Minutes or Less!

May's Movie Slot Machine spit out over 33 hours of movies for me to cover, ending with the taxing six-hour Italian soap opera, The Best of Youth. Following that seemingly endless marathon, June has been declared the first inaugural "Speed Round." There is only one new rule added for a Speed Round: to qualify for selection this month, a single movie must not be longer than 100 minutes.
