58th New York Film Festival Revivals Lineup Announced

Yesterday, the New York Film Festival made another 2020 announcement, this one looking back on the past a bit. Yes, longtime festival goers know that NYFF each year has a robust Revivals lineup, and this year will be no exception. The 58th incarnation of the fest will include a ton[...]

“Words On Bathroom Walls” Gives A Mature Sheen To The YA Genre

It would have been very easy for Words on Bathroom Walls to take a simplistic approach to the story that it’s telling. Young Adult novels that get turned into movies tend to lean on heavy themes, but don’t always tackle them in particularly mature ways. This one, however, is willing[...]

“Random Acts Of Violence” Is A Gnarly Passion Project From Jay Baruchel

Horror movies can easily get lost going down a path of just being a gore-fest or just being one big metaphor. The most successful efforts in the genre manage to do more than one thing, or at least aren’t completely simple to pin down. Jay Baruchel’s second outing behind the[...]

“Stage Mother” Is A Dramedy That Doesn’t Leave Enough Of A Lasting Impression

Giving a leading role to Jacki Weaver is something any filmmaker should be commended for. The veteran actress is a welcome presence anywhere, no matter the topic. Casting her as the lead in a fish out of water type dramedy? Well, that should be the main ingredient to a delicious[...]

The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video game franchise was an absolute revelation in the industry, as well as a huge attraction for gamers on the whole. I know even just personally, growing up it was one of the most popular things you could be playing, whether or not you knew[...]

“Sputnik” Discovers A Fun Angle For A Creature Feature

We don’t get enough material set in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. The era is so fraught with mystery and intrigue, it benefits more than just spy thrillers. This weekend’s new release Sputnik, for example, manages to use the period for a science fiction / horror outing. The[...]

“Skin: A History Of Nudity In The Movies” Manages To Be Very Entertaining Yet Never Exploitative

It’s really hard to make a documentary about movie nudity. Even with the best of intentions, one can really easily fall into exploitation and titillation, as opposed to information. Luckily, filmmaker Danny Wolf is up to the challenge, as his doc Skin: A History of Nudity in the Movies, is[...]

“Boys State” Provides An Equally Powerful And Upsetting Look At The Potential Future Of Political Division

Politics is, without question, a dirty business. At all levels, the political machine brings out (sometimes) the best in humanity, as well as (oftentimes, sadly) the worst in people. The startling and uniquely consuming documentary Boys State gets this, and depicts it with really tremendous clarity. Looking at a longstanding[...]
