Review: THE LIGHTHOUSE Is Maddeningly Brilliant

Absolutely horrifying in its presentation, and even moreso in its delivery, The Lighthouse is chaos and hell manifested on film. Robert Eggers’ followup to The Witch takes no time throwing its viewers into the murky depths of the ocean, which is absolutely unforgiving in this film. From the constant crashes of the waves to the deafening… Continue reading Review: THE LIGHTHOUSE Is Maddeningly Brilliant

Review: THE DEATH OF DICK LONG Is A One-Note Dark Comedy

The Death of Dick Long, the sophomore feature from director Daniel Schienert (one half of the duo behind Swiss Army Man), is a bizarre new dark comedy based on a single gag so weird that it’s hard to believe. However, in an attempt to go darker, Schienert loses the infectious charm that made his first… Continue reading Review: THE DEATH OF DICK LONG Is A One-Note Dark Comedy

Review: THE DEATH OF DICK LONG Is An Off-Kilter Crime Comedy

From its title alone, The Death of Dick Long stakes its claim as an incredibly off kilter crime caper. Taking place in rural Alabama, two friends attempt to cover up a night that gets a little too weird; yet overall feels perfectly in line with the film as a whole. Directed by Daniel Scheinert, one… Continue reading Review: THE DEATH OF DICK LONG Is An Off-Kilter Crime Comedy

Midsommar, Ari Aster’s sophomore feature re-released this past weekend in select theaters with thirty minutes of additional footage. If the original cut that was released this July wasn’t uncomfortable enough for you, Midsommar’s extended cut is certainly going to provide several more moments to make audiences feel uneasy, and disgusted with themselves. Just like the… Continue reading Review: MIDSOMMAR Director’s Cut Offers More Context And Is More Rewarding

One of the most buzzed-about titles to come out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Lulu Wang’s The Farewell is truly a sight to behold. Hilarious and heartwarming (often at the same time), this is the type of personal but still highly entertaining movie that we don’t see nearly enough in the multiplexes anymore. This… Continue reading Review: THE FAREWELL Is A Surprisingly Hilarious And Beautiful Film About Family

Review: MIDSOMMAR Is A Horrific Breakup Experience

After taking audiences by storm with his breakout masterpiece Hereditary, Ari Aster returns with Midsommar, which tells the most disturbing cinematic breakup tale. Aster’s sophomore feature depicts a ruthless and unnerving descent into madness between two people that don’t deserve a happily ever after. Written and directed by Aster, the film stars Florence Pugh, Jack… Continue reading Review: MIDSOMMAR Is A Horrific Breakup Experience

Review: MIDSOMMAR Is A Beautifully Demented Fairytale

When Ari Aster put Hereditary into the world last year, many were amazed at just how deranged the film got. Absolutely horrifying, an intense look into grief, and absolutely bathed in darkness, the film was a massive success. Whatever Aster was going to tackle next was sure to leave audiences in shambles, and Midsommar does… Continue reading Review: MIDSOMMAR Is A Beautifully Demented Fairytale
