BECKY Review

Like a haphazard mix of Home Alone and Straw Dogs, Becky is a hollow revenge thriller that can rarely be taken seriously.

THE VAST OF NIGHT Review

To invest in The Vast of Night is to wait, eagerly, for a twist and to decide not only what it means for the characters, but also what it means more broadly because maybe there’s a valuable lesson that will help us all if only we can find it.

INHERITANCE Review

From its thoroughly uninspired poster design – suspiciously similar to 13 Cloverfield Lane – to its predictable and formulaic plot, Vaughn Stein’s thriller, Inheritance, occasionally entertains but contains few shining or memorable moments. 

The setup is intriguing enough: a wealthy fiance exec

This film is trying to tackle two parts of the immigration system — the officers and the asylum seekers — but is really only doing justice for one of them.

12 Hour Shift is a trashy comedic thriller that boasts an entertainingly despicable cast of characters and a dark, twisted tale of addiction and organ trafficking during the Y2K crisis.

TIME WARP: THE GREATEST CULT FILMS OF ALL-TIME Review

Despite boasting an impressively large lineup of interviewees, the three-part documentary series Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All-Time adds little to the discourse on cult film and also could have used some more time in the editing room.

OTHER MUSIC Review

Other Music evokes a bygone era of in-person, tangible musical discovery that had me instantly reminiscing about a formidable time in my life that I’m sure others will experience as well.

BUTT BOY Review

Butt Boy is the type of utterly singular film that is so adamantly committed to its premise that it completely cuts through its initial absurdity. A presumptive hit at Fantastic Fest; where films are always lauded for their quirks above all else,
