You Hurt My Feelings Review- A Total Misfire For Everyone Involved

With there being all kinds of movies coming out from week to week it’s hard for little indie films to make it sometimes. A24 is one of those companies that have invested very well in arthouse directors and indie films that premiered at film festivals like the Sundance Film Festival.

Beau is Afraid Review- An Ambitious Yet Self-Indulgent Third Outing for Aster

Ari Aster came onto the scene back in 2018 with the first of his two big hits, Hereditary about a family who is haunted by an apparition, and in 2020 with Midsommar about a group of young people who get more than what they bargained for when they go to a commune in Sweden.

Showing Up Review- A Strange Collection of Characters at an Art School Doesn’t Make a Movie

There are a lot of films in the history of the movie industry that are just slice-of-life stories. That’s the case with Showing Up. It’s just this small little story that features a close-knit group of friends and family members. It’s not trying to be anything that important or groundbreaking. Kelly Reichardt is that kindContinue reading “Showing Up Review- A Strange Collection of Characters at an Art School Doesn’t Make a Movie”

The Inspection Review

As diversity in film and equality in Hollywood has started to spread through the film industry, more and more movies have started telling LGBT stories. Some are comedies, and others are very serious fare, such as The Inspection. In this film, Elegance Bratton writes and directs what amounts to a movie about his time in bootContinue reading “The Inspection Review”

The Whale Review

Darren Aronofsky is a director that isn’t for everybody. His films are a little offbeat. That’s not surprising though to most film fans or critics. We’ve been watching his films for a while now. I started watching his films with Requiem For a Dream and Pi. The Fountain wasn’t one of my favorites of hisContinue reading “The Whale Review”

Aftersun Review

Father-daughter or father-son movies have been a genre that has usually had some good films.

Stars at Noon Review

Stars at Noon is the second film of 2022 for fence filmmaker Claire Denis. The other one, Both Sides of the Blade starring Juliette Binoche and Vincent Lindon (Titane) was almost unwatchable. Her film High Life from 2018 starring Robert Pattinson was quite the contrary. I was totally engaged by this man living on aContinue reading “Stars at Noon Review”

Funny Pages Review

There have been a few movies about cartoonists before but none of them have been as weird and off the wall as Funny Pages. This film is a cross between American Splendor and a coming-of-age film. It has a period look to it that takes place back in the 80s but it’s a modern film.Continue reading “Funny Pages Review”

Bodies Bodies Bodies Review

There have been plenty of horror films where a group of young people meets up in a single location. This horror trope is so old it’s hardly an original idea for a movie… that is, until now. You have a young couple meeting their friends at a secluded mansion on a mountain during a hurricane.Continue reading “Bodies Bodies Bodies Review”
