With an important story for a country with

Simon-Abkarian-Thomas-Solivérès-and-Marc-Andréoni-in-Cyrano-My-Love-–-Photo-Credit-Nicolas-Velter-–-Courtesy-of-Roadside-Attractions.s 7.5

CYRANO, MY LOVE Review

It may not be an autobiography, but by pulling from his theater and film experience, Michalik's creation seems as effortless as Rostand's when Rostand is in his poetic zone.

Famous Image 8.5

FAMOUS Review

Famous is an intense criticism of the entertainment industry, full of creative technical brilliance.

Still 8 7.5

SHADOW Review

SHADOW may not have the anticipative story of HERO or the emotional complexity of RAISE THE RED LANTERN, but its visuals are so impressive that it can be enjoyed on mute with the subtitles turned off.

us_2 7.5

US Review

Just like Peele's first film Get Out, Us is a skillfully written mystery-horror filled with deceit, humor and social commentary.

1. Birds of Passage - L to R - José Acosta and Natalia Reyes 7.5

BIRDS OF PASSAGE Review

A cross between Dances With Wolves and Narcos, Birds of Passage is dangerous education that thrives in originality.

01_Daughter of Mine 6.5

DAUGHTER OF MINE Review

Daughter of Mine is a wonderful idea on maturity and motherhood that is unfortunately not executed to its highest potential.

GENESIS 2.0 Review

In order to appreciate Genesis 2.0 fully, there must be an effort made by the viewer to take a pensive look at what the filmmakers are putting forth.

AMERICAN STREET KID Review

There may be more creative or more technically composed documentaries out there, but I have never in my life seen a documentary, or any film for that matter, that made me care about the people on screen as much as American Street Kid.
