    this was so good. funny and bittersweet. Murphy and Lawrence have such great chemistry, and the ensemble cast is STACKED.

    ★★★★½

    I need more of Shaft as a Greenwich Village bartender

  • Knock at the Cabin

    Knock at the Cabin

    ★★

    Dumbest shit since the reaping, but at least the reaping reveled in the schlock rather than propping itself up with sanctimonious seriousness.

    ★★★★★

    if I were an exec and saw this I would absolutely have greenlit the feature and I love the feature, so I'm grateful to whichever exec did

    solid entry in the one chaotic day genre

  • Mamacruz

    Mamacruz

    ★★★

    the horny scenes were great, as were the scenes where the women were speaking freely amongst themselves, but overall this felt a little too conventional until the last shot

  • The Accidental Getaway Driver

    The Accidental Getaway Driver

    ★★★

    great cinematography by Michael Fernandez and chemistry between Hiep Tran Nghia and Dustin Nguyen, but this feels overlong and overwritten

  • Cassandro

    Cassandro

    ★★★½

    well crafted crowdpleaser with a winning performance from Gael García Bernal, but I wish it had as much personality as Marie Losier's doc "Cassandro, the Exotico!". That said, the scene where he takes inspiration for his character from his mom's strength (and her leopard print leotard) and the scene with the kid who said he helped him come out made me cry.

  • Fair Play

    Fair Play

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    filed under "are the straights okay?"

    also the ending is just a straight up rip off of "Gaslight" but with more violence
