Latest Reviews


Outlaw King

While well-shot, aesthetic choices can do little for an emotionally vacant film, where scenes seem to proceed arbitrarily and technical prowess is without meaning.

Christina Tucker, Film Inquiry


One of the most violent and insane movies I have ever seen. And I loved it.

Kent Garrison, Mad About Movies Podcast

Becoming Astrid (Unga Astrid)

A charming albeit conventional look at the coming of age of one of the most successful writers of children's books.

Harvey S. Karten, Big Apple Reviews


Twelve Monkeys (12 Monkeys)

Time has been kind to 12 Monkeys, a compelling and unnerving genre exercise that boasts what may be Bruce Willis's finest performance.

Niles Schwartz, Slant Magazine

The Last Hurrah

The disc offers a beautiful transfer of a neglected film, with a commentary that serves as a valuable resource for cinephiles and casual viewers alike.

Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine


The name "Spike Lee" isn't always synonymous with subtlety (this is the guy that made "Bamboozled" after all) but in "BlacKkKlansman" he finds a balance that exceeds even his greatest work.

Derek Deskins, Edge Media Network
