    Free State of Jones


    Despite a great performance from the leafs, historically it falls apart. Visually, it’s for the most part compelling, but ultimately overlong (by a long shot), with unnecessary 20th century sequences, and overall forgettable

    The Leader, His Driver, and the Driver's Wife


    “I’m bloody racist. If you don’t know by now, you’ll never know it.”

    This is a fascinating, well made film, that is an interesting firsthand account into South Africa’s immediately post apartheid neonazi party, headed by de Blanche- a man who would wind up killed by his field hands in 2010. There are some in ZA that say that de Blanche’s death was part of a larger policy of white genocide. If anyone says this, show them this film. Show them the AWB’s logo.

    Also this is the pinnacle of slow and meandering horror that builds atmosphere and sound horror rather than relying on jump scares

    Good Time


    Fantastic claustrophobic and neon cinematography that gives vibes of a Refn film on crack. Rather than meticulous and graceful, Good Time is raw and intense- nothing but heart pounding stress and anxiety.
    Amazing performances all around.
