BODIED Review

Though a tad too long, coming in at two hours, the standout performances from Worthy (along with all the rappers involved), the fantastic script, and Joseph Kahn’s music video-esque visuals make Bodied not one to miss.

THE DARK Review

The Dark is a disturbing, yet oddly touching, feature debut from Justin P. Lange, and while it comes dangerously close to becoming dull at a few spots, it never completely loses its connection with the audience and deftly delivers a tragic, hopeful story about the resilience of human beings and the healing power of the positive connections we have to one another.

KNUCKLEBALL Review

Playing out like a darker, more twisted version of Home Alone, Michael Peterson’s Knuckleball pits a clever little kid against a sadistic killer in a bloody game of cat and mouse.

AWAIT FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS Review

The serious, real-life cruelties occurring at America’s southern border, and the encroaching darkness of the last couple of years, make this an apt time for genre films to add to the discourse and perhaps provide some escape.

NYFF 2018: HER SMELL Review

Alex Ross Perry’s latest and most caustic film yet, Her Smell, is an exhausting journey into the shattered mind of a riot-grrrl rocker on a downward spiral of substance abuse that too often tags along with fame.
