Pre-2016 Film Reviews

Appropriate Behavior

Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com

  • Excerpt: You shouldn’t be surprised by how much heartache is present considering the subject matter lets it exist behind every scene, but it will surprise simply because we so rarely receive it in this genre.

Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: Birdboy’ is the story of cute, drug-addicted baby animals stranded on a dystopian, post-apocalyptic island… But for all of its sarcastic nihilism, it’s not a black comedy, but an empathetic fable and an immersive spectacle, told through beautiful and often psychedelic animation.

Capturing the Friedmans

Federico Furzan @ Cinelipsis [Spanish]

Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father

Federico Furzan @ Cinelipsis [Spanish]

Green Room

Joaquim Pedro de Andrade: The Complete Films

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee, Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Unlike the French New Wave, where we had some idea of what the rebellion was all about, Cinema Novo was both a rebellion in terms of filmmaking and of taking a political stance.

Macbeth

Federico Furzan @ Cinelipsis [Spanish]

Miller’s Crossing

Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com

  • Excerpt: We love these characters because they’re flawed and thus allow the Coens to let the story dictate their ends. It’s not a matter of who should die in any given situation because letting the person who would die is far better.

Stoker

Federico Furzan @ Cinelipsis [Spanish]
