(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on November 16, 2012.) Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. The story of a woman torn between her family, her extramarital love, and the societal pressures that destroy them all.

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on November 16, 2012.) Director Ciarán Foy’s Citadel is an uncomfortable movie; its aesthetic, its manner, its story – everything about it speaks of great unease. Billed as a horror film, Citadel encompasses one man’s life turning from being a young, hopeful husband to an agoraphobic shell […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on November 8, 2012.) This is kind of a new foray for me. How does one actually rate and review a James Bond movie? Do you treat it like any other movie, or are these movies held to a different standard due to their cultural status? This […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on November 2, 2012.) Eco-horror movies have been around for ages. One could conceivably call the Godzilla films eco-horror films, as the giant lizard was born in a hostile environment, emerging to wreak havoc upon an unsuspecting populace; likewise with The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha (the […]

(This review originally appeared at Reel Film News on November 1, 2012.) If last month’s Beauty is Embarrassing was my favorite documentary of 2012, High Ground has become the first documentary of the year that I demand that everyone watch; it should be required viewing for anyone and everyone with a television or access to […]

“The War on Drugs may be well-intentioned / but it falls f**kin’ flat when you stop to mention / an overcrowded prison where a rapist gets paroled / to make room for a dude who has sold / a pound of weed – to me, that’s a crime…” — Nick Hexum, “Offbeat Bare-Ass”, from 311’s […]
