Sundance Movie Review: 892

Based on real events, 892 tells the riveting story of Brian Easley (played by John Boyega), a 33-year-old Marine veteran who entered a bank on July 7, 2017 and took two hostages while claiming to have explosives in his backpack.

Sundance Movie Review: Fresh

There are three questions I had when the end credits began to roll in the new horror-thriller-jet black comedy FRESH. One, will I ever be able to stop thinking about/talking about this film? Two, is the world ready for it? And three, how will anything at Sundance be able to top this? There have been… Continue reading Sundance Movie Review: Fresh

Movie Review: The Power of the Dog

THE POWER OF THE DOG, written and directed by legendary filmmaker Jane Campion, is one of my biggest movie surprises of the year. It breathes new life into the Western genre, in part serving as a criticism on the exaggerated masculinity that we traditionally associate with this category of film. One of the surest signs… Continue reading Movie Review: The Power of the Dog

Movie Review: Spencer (Middleburg Film Festival)

SPENCER, directed by Pablo Larraín (JACKIE), has been one of my most anticipated films since I first heard about it in the production process. Not only does it check all of the boxes of my interests (royals, a female lead, costumes, a haunting score, breathtaking cinematography), but it also has one of the strongest performances… Continue reading Movie Review: Spencer (Middleburg Film Festival)
