We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

New fodder for your Netflix queue? The pickings have been pretty slim lately, as the studios burn off the trash they generally dump into theaters in January and February.

Finally, though, a little good news: Waltz With Bashir, the gripping animated documentary from director Ari Folman, arrives today. It's an entirely new approach to the filters that survivors of war create to mediate the horrors, and it all builds to a surprisingly devastating conclusion. Flawed, but also worth a look, is the 2008 Sundance holdover Phoebe in Wonderland, about a family dealing with their daughter's undiagnosed emotional and/or neurological issues.

Surely Confessions of a Shopaholic and The Pink Panther 2 can wait.
