time share 8.5

TIME SHARE Review

So masterfully directed is Time Share that its tale of wolfish sales tactics crosses over from petty satire and enters into emphatic human drama.

The Guilty - Still 3 6.5

THE GUILTY Review

Told over the course of one harrowing evening in Denmark, Gustav Möller’s The Guilty presents a tense thriller while keeping the viewers, and our protagonist, Asger (Jakob Cedergren), fixed in one location.

An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn - Still 1 7.5

AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN Review

It’s a polarizing film that some like myself will love and find to be brilliantly funny and others will just find it too weird and annoying to get on board with. Whichever side you land on, An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn is a movie you won’t forget experiencing anytime soon.

Mandy - Still 1 6.5

MANDY Review

This ’80s-set thriller is a chaotic, drug-fuelled, heavy metal, balls-to-the-wall extravaganza of violence and carnage.

SUMMER OF ’84 Review

In their second feature after the wonderful Turbo Kid, filmmaking collective RKSS (Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell) take us back to the ‘80s and hits our nostalgia bone hard with Summer of ’84, an homage to genre films from the best decade.

Sundance 2018: THE CATCHER WAS A SPY Review

Woven together as they are, without contextualization or a more dramatic arc, what’s left is only a somewhat interesting story about a somewhat interesting man that fizzles out with a somewhat of a whimper.

american-animals 6

AMERICAN ANIMALS Review

While American Animals might be as ambitious as The Imposter, it fails to hit the same levels of brilliance though it remains an entertaining watch.

rbg_1 8.5

RBG Review

Cohen and West take a non-linear approach to telling RBG’s life story, interspersing both old and new interviews and testimonies with file footage and home videos, and they punctuate major milestones in her life with benchmark cases and political movements.

sweet country 7

SWEET COUNTRY Review

Set in the 1920s, Sweet Country applies a classical Western aesthetic to this story while making clear that it is decidedly Australian.

death-of-stalin 8

THE DEATH OF STALIN Review

The film’s high-brow, blink-and-you’ll-miss-’em gags blend seamlessly with the visual humor and physical bits. If you’re a fan of HBO's Veep, you will have a sense of what to expect with Stalin.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post - Still 1
