Set Fire to the Stars

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice

  • Excerpt: Story of the love/hate relationship between the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and his tour-agent during his first visit to America.

Andy Crump @ Movie Mezzanine

  • Excerpt: the film doesn’t offer a perspective much more revelatory than “Thomas was a divine poet and a real pain in the ass.”

The Wolfpack

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: Moselle appears to have assimilated herself a bit too deeply into this family, observing her wolfpack from the inside out when an outsider’s perspective would have achieved more balance.

Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See

  • Excerpt: Sad and strange, funny and touching, wholly unusual and like nothing you’ve ever seen before, The Wolfpack is both powerful and unsettling.

2015 Films (Coming Soon)

Chagall-Malevich

Carson Lund @ Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: Chagall-Malevich is dense with subplots, supporting characters, and extra-diegetic contexts, but it’s missing a through line with which to connect them meaningfully. The film is dramatically excessive, sometimes even laughably overreaching.
