SXSW 2019: WELL GROOMED Review

While the community it focuses on takes niche to its most extreme lengths, Well Groomed is a refreshingly even-handed journey through the beyond-strange world of creative dog grooming.

KOLOBOS Arrow Blu-ray Review

Bog-standard, straight-to-video horror movies were a dime a dozen in the ’90s, and while Kolobos may unfairly be lumped into that category, there’s enough creativity here to set it apart from the rest.

Cannibal Club - Still 2 5.5

THE CANNIBAL CLUB Review

Nothing is expounded upon, just introduced (sometimes in a shocking manner) and resigned to a sedentary existence amongst other ideas launched and ignored.

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.
