CIRCUS KANE Review

CIRCUS KANE has its handcrafted charms, but the production is penny wise and pound foolish.

The-Evil-In-Us 4

THE EVIL IN US Review

The Evil In Us is a drab and annoying cabin-in-the-woods horror movie where, surprise, the monster was inside of us all along.

KILL ME PLEASE Review

Kill Me Please works as a well shot story of adolescence, but doesn’t delve far enough into its intriguing premise.

Bushwick_2 7.5

BUSHWICK Review

Bushwick is an energetic, unflinching look at war on the homefront with some great cinematography and an unforgettable climax.

england_is_mine-h_2017 3.5

ENGLAND IS MINE Review

England is Mine is an uncharacteristically prescient and upfront name for a movie that isn’t even a fraction as bold.

villainess_1 5

THE VILLAINESS Review

Two outstanding, seemingly single-take action sequences bookend The Villainess, but the strong first and last impressions can’t make up for a shapeless, meandering middle.

CLASH Review

CLASH clears away ideological nitpicking in favor of a constrained character study.

leap_still 2

LEAP! Review

The voice performers were all excellent for the most part but didn't have much to work with script wise; I couldn’t say whether this is due to bad writing or cultural/linguistic translations, but the version meant for American audiences was bewildering and bloated to say the least.

LOGAN LUCKY 7.5

LOGAN LUCKY Review

Logan Lucky strips away the complexities of the genre and frames it around the common man’s hopes for a big score.

Lemon-Cera-2017 4

LEMON Review

Janicza Bravo’s debut feature, Lemon, is a triptych of a mediocre man named Isaac (played by Brett Gelman), a stunted man with a deteriorating set of social skills who currently finds himself in a challenging stretch of his life brought on by his inability to think of anyone but himself.
