Set Fire to the Stars
- Excerpt: Story of the love/hate relationship between the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and his tour-agent during his first visit to America.
- Excerpt: the film doesn’t offer a perspective much more revelatory than “Thomas was a divine poet and a real pain in the ass.”
- 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.
- Excerpt: Sad and strange, funny and touching, wholly unusual and like nothing you’ve ever seen before, The Wolfpack is both powerful and unsettling.

ABCs of Death 2
2015 Films (Coming Soon)
- 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.
