As much as this might clash with its ethereal beginnings, both provide intriguing filmmaking from an authentic creative voice. Review

The film hits a roadblock quickly. Instead of swerving around it, it rams straight into it. Review

It isn’t a platform from which a truly noteworthy movie can emerge. Review

Dickey’s performance permeates life across every frame. And Blaze doesn’t require much more than that to be enthralling. Review

No one is interesting. Nothing is novel. 90 minutes pass by unimpeded by fear or intrigue. Review

The film is like Spring Breakers meets The Purge but with more on its mind. Yet its ultimate message does not live up to its lofty satiric ambitions. Review

Armed with a well-known, inherently engaging story. But it doesn’t do much with it. Review

It is sharply written and packed with tense emotions. When the film is not directly informed by Close’s performance, however, it quickly loses its way. Review

Not a good film, per se. In some instances, it is barely coherent. But it is an experience, one that kept me rapt until the very end. Review

More of a comedy than the sci-fi-horror-action hybrid that the franchise is known for. And most of this comedy is groan-worthy, at best. Review

Comes off as a derivative true crime film that has been filled to the brim with acting talent to hide the fact that the characters have no character to them. Review

An intriguing comic design that yields some smirks, but in total it is a comedy of absurdist pretension with much more bark than bite. Review

It all reeks of a certain stock and trade, one in which the audience expects little enough that anything above mediocre will suffice. Review

It is clear that, structurally, Kin is a disaster. What it does have going for it is fairly decent acting. Review
