Dede

Mariam Katchvani’s Dede is one of the most beautiful portrayals of spiritual tradition, heartache, grief, and sacrifice I have ever witnessed. Taking place at an unnamed time in the past in the Georgian villages of Svaneti and Ushguli, we follow the unfortunate life events of a young woman named Dina. At the outset of the … Continued

Tazzeka

Passion. A burning desire. A deep compulsion rising from within your soul. That driving force compelling you to do what you love (even just recreationally) allows you to feel alive in ways nothing else can. That passion is different for everyone–some people read books for adventure, others watch movies to experience the world, and of … Continued

Border

The Swedish fantasy thriller Border is the sophomore feature from Ali Abbasi, who improved considerably regarding thrills and tone when compared with his debut Shelley. After learning that the script had the stamp of John Ajvide Lindqvist on it – he authored the acclaimed vampire tale Let The Right One In – my expectations went … Continued

Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers

Madness, Farewell is what would happen if a Hallmark director accidentally drove over his dog on … Continued

Veronica

We rely so much on our sense of self. Who we are and who we’d like to be, are mind-numbing concepts that play on foundations of cynism and sincerity. In more ways than one, a pursuit of identity is a path we’ve all set off on. It could be a coming-of-age life reconnaissance, middle age … Continued

Alone We Fight

Pensive low-budget war film Alone We Fight delivers director Justin Lee’s version of the World War II battle of Hürtgen Forest. Hürtgen was a predecessor to The Battle of the Bulge in the Ardennes Forest and though less well known was brutal and extremely costly to the Allied forces. An estimated 55,000 Allies were killed … Continued

Scarecrows

Teenagers are kidnapped and made into scarecrows that are left to die in the crop fields. So, we’ve all seen that movie right? The one, with the teenagers on their way to a thing and that creepy scarecrow dude comes, and kills them? No. Not Jeepers Creepers, Scarecrows. Taking a scythe to the well-worn formula … Continued
