I saw Mass at the Sundance Film Festival early this year and my first watch of the film was a bit rough around the edges. However, within the next 24 hours, I rewatched the movie and I liked it a little more than I thought I did. So, a few months ago, I revisited the film and decided to give it my first five-star rating of the year (only one other film has garnered that spot out of 300+ 2021 watches).
For me, this is a sign of a fantastic film and filmmaking. What Fran Kranz captured within this film between the heart, emotion and devastation was nothing short of immaculate. I had put it on my bucket list to chat with Fran about the film and thankfully, it came true.
I was able to sit down with Kranz and pick his brain on what I think is one of the greatest films ever made.
