    Devil's Freedom

    I remember hearing about La Libertad Del Diablo a few years ago, when it caused a stir in parochial war nerd circles after it was reported that the director, Everardo Gonzales, spent months posing as a narco in order to gain access to the subjects of the film. Alas, it proved difficult to track down, as is common for foreign language festival darlings with difficult to monetize content and awkward runtimes. I finally found a way to watch a few months…

    Like Rabid Dogs

    “There exists in Italy a secret force parallel to the armed forces, composed of civilians and military men, in an anti-Soviet capacity - that is, to organize a resistance on Italian soil against a Russian army... A secret organization, a super-organization with a network of communications, arms and explosives, and men trained to use them... A super-organization which, lacking a Soviet military invasion which might not happen, took up the task, on NATO's behalf, of preventing a slip to the…

    Probably the gold standard for docu-shot satire of this nature. Really witty, it’s always managing to stay just a little bit more grounded than you think it’s gonna be, avoiding the temptation to be obvious and subverting your expectation of this kind of comedy, always keeping a quarter turn away from the likes of The Office... whole cast is amazing! Capaldi really smokes, and we love Gina McKee, don’t we ladies and gentlemen? It’s such a joy seeing Gandolfini in anything, but it’s especially great when he’s playing a character this far removed from his defining role

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

    Great theater experience. Someone took a photo with their phone w the flash and camera sound on, then started playing a trippie redd song off the phone speakers. Guy next to me kept falling asleep, waking up bc of the gunfire in the movie, checking his texts, then falling right back asleep, and people were all literally groaning when the credits rolled.

    As for the film itself? You might not know this from the trailer, but Resident Evil: Welcome 2…

  • Pig


    Dogshit dogshit dogshit. The type of film that it is downright sinful to make in a climate like ours. Petulant, self indulgent, and bafflingly stupid, the four and five star reviews must be coming exclusively from people who have never felt real grief, or who otherwise think their own daddy issues would also make a good and compelling film. Artless, godless and ultimately cowardly, Pig is the ultimate in auteur hack job suck off A24 bullshit, the type of dog…
