SXSW 2017 Quick Review: Game of Death

I hate to simplify this and say it’s just gory death Jumanji but not as creative….but it is basically just gory death Jumanji but not as creative. A group of unlikable teens find a game while partying that proposes that they kill or be killed. What follows is a lot of style over substance with […]

SXSW Quick Review: Free Fire

What a rambunctious, wild rodeo! “Free Fire” was my first foray into director Ben Wheatley’s work (although “High Rise” has been sitting in my Netflix queue forever) and I feel partially neglectful + disrespectful for not happening upon his films sooner.Thanks to a tight, witty script that favors simplicity of confinement rather than overblown plot, […]

SXSW Quick Review: Most Beautiful Island

Based on the graphic novel The Coldest City, Charlize Theron plays a Cold War era spy thrown into a […]

SXSW Quick Review: The Strange Ones

Dir. Christopher Radcliff and Lauren Wolkstein This little indie gem is an enigma of a movie. The story starts as a dramatic road movie about two brothers, but evolves into a mystery that demands your attention. I always appreciate a movie that allows you to come to your own conclusions after following the bread crumbs […]

SXSW 2017 Quick Review: Baby Driver

Dir. Edgar Wright Whoa baby. What a ride. The new film from Edgar Wright is exhilarating, fresh, funny, charming, slick, etc. It’s an amalgam of genres and a celebration of classic and modern pop/rock music. A technical feat of expert pacing and insanely kinetic well executed car chases. The adrenaline rush from the chase scenes […]

SXSW 2017 Quick Review: The Disaster Artist

James Franco’s adaption of the making of the cult classic film, “The Room,” is a competent, humorous, energetic, and surprisingly emotional piece of work. Performances across the entirety of the cast are fantastic, the story is engaging and sticks close to the source material, and most importantly, the film is crafted and dedicated to the […]
