Back Roads (2018)
Dark and twisty indie drama.
Posted Dec 13, 2018
A bearable bawdy pro-feminist comedy, even if it had no emotional impact on me and the comedy rushed by me as it makes its way to its target audience.
Posted Dec 12, 2018
Unsettling niche British horror film.
Posted Dec 11, 2018
Gothic horror pic that's all style and of little substance.

Don't Leave Home (2018)
I'd give it an A for effort and C for execution.
Posted Dec 8, 2018
Beautiful Boy (2018)
The story might be uplifting but the film itself is a bit of a drag.

The film rocks if you can chill with it.
Posted Dec 1, 2018
At Eternity's Gate (2018)

It's about as deep as a Hallmark card.

A glib political drama.
Posted Nov 22, 2018

It's a remarkable film, one that requires multiple viewings to be fully appreciated and understood for its satire.
Posted Nov 21, 2018

Under the Tree (Undir trénu) (2018)

Posted Nov 9, 2018
The police are viewed as the Dogs of the title.
Posted Nov 8, 2018
Burning (Beoning) (2018)

This Canadian Nora Ephron-like rom-com aspires to explore the meaning of love but misses the target because it's not on point about carrying through on its cynicism.
Posted Nov 6, 2018

I felt I did my due diligence to plow through it once, but would not see it again for all the free buttered popcorn in the world.
