Stronger

As Stronger opens, we meet Jeff Bauman (played by Jake Gyllenhaal), who seems like a decent enough guy, if not entirely focused or motivated. He lives in a tiny apartment with his overbearing, chain smoking mother (Miranda Richardson), whose idea of quality time together is spent at a local bar. When not working at Costco, … Continued

Slimed

Slimed, the latest offering from distributor of true independent filmmaking Troma (streaming on their VHX powered channel Troma NOW), is a celebration of hope in heroism by way of blunt stupidity. Both main characters – an atheist park ranger and a doofy bible salesman – have a sloppy demeanor and a crooked haircut respectively, indicating … Continued

It

If you need to read this summary of what IT is then we pity you. A group of bullied kids band together when a monster, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children.

The Last Family

The Last Family, a very humorous yet unsettling biographical drama about the Polish dystopian-surrealist painter Zdzislaw Beksinski, starts with a funny lightness, develops with an enthralling wittiness between the lines, and ends with a harrowing murder scene. Even with death, suicide, and illness playing influential roles in the life of the Beksinskis, the film embraced … Continued
