BO BURNHAM’S ‘EIGHTH GRADE’ IS AWKWARD, HONEST, AND ENDLESSLY LOVABLE

July 21st, 2018|

Growing up, I always thought that by the time I got to high school, I’d look like the girls I saw in the movies. Cher Horwitz from Clueless. Veronica Sawyer from Heathers. Anyone from Cruel Intentions, 10 Things I Hate About You, Bring it On. You get the idea. To my vast disappointment, it was revealed that our freshman selves are not that different from our 8th grade selves. Our looks can be summed up [...]

JORDAN RESSLER WINNER ‘CUSTODY’ WILL HAVE YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT

July 11th, 2018|

The title of the film refers to a famous permanent exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History in [...]

‘UNDER THE TREE’: CASTING A CLOUD OVER COMEDY

June 28th, 2018|

When I introduced Under the Tree at the 2018 Miami Film Festival back in March, I was hesitant to say too much about the film. This is a movie best experienced, not explained. However, there was one small thing I told the audience to keep in the back of their heads: view this film through the lens of a dark comedy. Heed that advice, and I think you’ll find Under the Tree to be a [...]

‘FIRST REFORMED’ IS AN INCENDIARY FILM FOR RIGHT NOW

May 31st, 2018|

Cinema has always held the power to be a product of its time -- to be a stark reminder of the current social and sociopolitical climate, even when that reminder is buried under layers of plot details. Our collective fears, in particular, say a lot about us. So it should come as no surprise that Paul Schrader's First Reformed, an amalgamation of some of our biggest fears of the 21st century, feels so visceral and raw that [...]
