Sadako 1-1 3

Fantasia 2019: SADAKO Review

Sadako begins tempting enough, with a decent setup and a few effective scares, but as the runtime progresses, it slowly derails into a slog that makes Sadako vs. Kayako look like the most logical movie in existence. 

FURIE STILLS 1 6.5

NYAFF 2019: FURIE Review

Like some kind of badass Vietnamese version of Taken, Le-Van Kiet’s Furie brings fast, fluid action with a heavy dose of style to make it a martial arts bonanza that’s not one to be missed.

JAM STILL 1 6

NYAFF 2019: JAM Review

By exploring the small overlaps between, and coincidences among, the stories of complete strangers, Jam fails to become as good as the sum of its parts.

loveless 7.5

THE LOVELESS Arrow Blu-ray Review

While the script is a bit on the sparse side, The Loveless additionally showcases some incredible talent behind the camera with Bigelow and Montgomery’s direction.

WHITE SNAKE STILL 7 5

NYAFF 2019: WHITE SNAKE Review

Full of gratuitous eye candy, White Snake is a derivative exercise that wrongly believes overloading itself with style and action can sustain yet another take on the ancient Chinese legend.

WALK WITH ME STILL 3 5

NYAFF 2019: WALK WITH ME Review

Walk With Me just misses the mark in being an effective and thought-provoking thriller that perhaps would have benefitted from a tighter script and different editing choices.
