A Love Song

What is a love song but a meditation about our heart’s yearnings? As such, Max Walker-Silverman’s debut film A Love Song is titled very appropriately, being about a woman’s journey up out of grief that has led her to a campsite by a lake. But we don’t know that right off the bat – like […]

Clerks III (2022) – Movie Review

Those familiar with writer/director/film geek paragon Kevin Smith’s story about how he turned his film school education and his convenience store work experience into indie film box office gold will no doubt be enthralled with Clerks III, the follow-up to the 1994 original and its 2006 sequel. 1994’s sleeper hit Clerks spawned an entire microcosm […]

Wire Room (2022) – Movie Review

The premise of Wire Room is certainly more interesting than its execution. A lone federal agent in a secure facility tries to prevent a surveillance target from being killed – it’s gold, bearing many opportunities to tell this story with meaning, purpose, and style. As it stands, though, we only have characters we don’t care […]

You could call it black comedy, dominoes falling during one man’s week from hell, or just life being the unpredictable bitch that it is, throwing every possible curve at you until either you beg for mercy or take […]

Breaking (2022) – Movie Review

The linchpin of Breaking lies in John Boyega’s masterful, nuanced performance as Marine veteran Brian Brown-Easley. Not only is the film an indictment of the Veterans Administration, it is also a harsh look at how mental illness is dealt with in this country, especially concerning our military veterans. But more than that, it is the […]

Squeal (2022) – Movie Review

The head-scratching Squeal (former title: Samuel’s Travels) feels like a Monty Python sketch turned completely weird – well, weirder than it probably would be, but compelling nonetheless. Its manner reminds me of a similar film called Men & Chicken, especially with its hard-charging, heavily exaggerated tone. Both these films operate as a stream of consciousness, […]
