SMALLER AND SMALLER CIRCLES Review

While the film is occasionally on the nose (Saenz’s name is often said similar to the word science, which feels too cute by half), it is an engrossing piece of cinema with a wonderful lead performance at its heart.

Cannibal Club - Still 2 5.5

AUDITION Arrow Blu-ray Review

Audition remains one of the best films in the now-vast filmography of one of Japan’s most prolific directors, and its shocking content has easily held up since its release in 1999.

ST. AGATHA Review

The twisted mind behind Saw II, III and IV drops a well calibrated stomach-turner whose overriding staleness is bolstered by Hennesy’s show-stealing turn.

LORDS OF CHAOS Review

Many Westerners may not be familiar with the work of the band Mayhem and fewer still know the crazy, real-life story behind the infamous group that invented the Norwegian Black Metal genre.
