The Unloved, Part 100: West Side Story



The Unloved Part 100: West Side Story

We are honored to bring you the 100th installment of UNLOVED!

What are you even saying? An idea you had, to get people to watch “Alien³” with a view to forgiving its narrative sins and looking past a botched studio edit, to seeing a work of visual beauty from a born director with one eye that doesn’t even look up for it…he’s now old enough to be in third grade.

I decided not to pick a new movie to replace 100, but rather, at the suggestion of my editorial team, Brian Tallerico, Matt Zoller Seitz, and Nick Allen, to take it for the long haul. I looked at the whole project and took a white whale, someone who would never organically qualify for The Unloved because hey… he’s too loved.

But that didn’t seem like enough either, so I asked for some help. Special guests in a series of video essays on failure, it’s not okay, but hey, I had to go all out.

This video essay is the culmination of a lifetime of reflection on the underborn, the forgotten, the underappreciated and the unrepresented. The Olympiads of failure.

It’s here. The unloved 100th.

Editor’s Note: Stay tuned for more information on an upcoming virtual event on Thursday, April 14 that will celebrate Scout Tafoya and her Unloved Series!
