SONG OF BACK AND NECK Review

Song of Back and Neck would make for a perfect Netflix Original. It’s an inoffensive, slightly heartwarming comedy with a few recognizable names and a universally relatable plot about the stresses in our lives. Unfortunately, it’s also a fairly bland and forgettable affair, also perfect for Netflix viewing.

TIME SHARE Review

So masterfully directed is Time Share that its tale of wolfish sales tactics crosses over from petty satire and enters into emphatic human drama.

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.

An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn - Still 1 7.5

AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN Review

It’s a polarizing film that some like myself will love and find to be brilliantly funny and others will just find it too weird and annoying to get on board with. Whichever side you land on, An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn is a movie you won’t forget experiencing anytime soon.
