RAMEN HEADS Review

Ramen Heads comes apart, not because of its failings as much as its unintentional reiteration that it could have worked better as a short film.

DEMON HOUSE Review

Bagans' handling of this information turns what could be an interesting exploration of a strange phenomenon into a three-ring circus.

WILD WILD COUNTRY Review

As the titles implies, this is an absolutely wild story, filled with constant intrigue, and for someone like myself who was completely unfamiliar with the events that took place, I was hanging on every twist and turn, gobsmacked at the next bit of craziness that was revealed.

ALMOST HOLY Review

There are few people in this world who could be classified as true heroes – those who selflessly help others in need without asking for anything in return, many times at the detriment to their own wellbeing. Gennadiy Mokhnenko, the subject of director Steve Hooper’s latest documentary, Almost Holy (formerly titled Crocodile Gennadiy), seems to handily fit that bill. Spanning over a decade, the film looks at Mokhnenko’s work as a pastor and the founder of the Pilgrim Republic rehabilitation center, protecting the youth of Ukraine from addiction and the streets.

THE LAST MAN ON THE MOON Review

Mark Craig’s The Last Man on the Moon is the story of Eugene “Gene” Cernan, an American astronaut, who, among other things, reached the fastest speed ever attained in a manned vehicle (24,791 MPH) with two of his fellow astronauts, and he was the last person to walk on the surface of the moon.

DRUNK STONED BRILLIANT DEAD: THE STORY OF THE NATIONAL LAMPOON Review

It’s an unfortunate thing, but some of you younger readers may only know The National Lampoon as that company that made a couple good movies a long time ago and a slew of straight-to-video garbage since then. In actuality however, The National Lampoon was one of the biggest comedy institutions of the late ’60s and ’70s and helped kickstart the careers of some of the biggest names in the world of humor.

THE WOLFPACK Review

If I told you that there was a premise for a movie about seven children who were locked in a Lower East Side apartment for their whole lives who then finally decide to break out and see the world, you might think that it sounds like a lovely piece of fiction. But the kicker about Crystal Moselle’s The Wolfpack is that it is a factual documentary that is truly stranger than fiction.

THE SEARCH FOR FREEDOM Review

In Jon Long’s visually stunning new documentary The Search for Freedom, we explore the lives and philosophies of some of the world’s most successful action sports athletes. Rather than presenting a film just about skating or surfing, Long attempts to cover a wide array of sports, including mountain biking and climbing, snowboarding, motocross, base jumping and more.
