  • Rogers Movie Nation Film Review: 'Hesburgh'

    Rogers Movie Nation Film Review: 'Hesburgh'

    Patrick Creadon’s film still captures a complicated figure, a “liberal” only by the Catholic Church’s standards of the day, an “activist” in an almost forgotten forgotten use of the word, who hobnobbed with the rich and powerful and worked — always from the inside — for social justice, peace and progress from the Eisenhower 1950s to the Reagan Era ’80s.
  • EXCLAIM Film Review: 'CLARA'

  • NY Times Film Review: 'Chasing Portraits'

    “Chasing Portraits” is about a search. Yet the most affecting parts of this documentary come with the realization that some things may never be found.
  • NON FICS Film Review: 'Breaking Habits'

    NON FICS Film Review: 'Breaking Habits'

    Breaking Habits, a feature documentary about Sister Kate, succeeds in putting a face and a story to the folks fighting to change the inhibitory and arguably harmful regulation of pot. It triumphs in demonstrating how criminalization puts law-abiding business owners at risk and points the finger at myopic lawmakers for enabling a dangerous, gun-toting black market.
  • FLICK FILOSOPHER Film Review: 'Stuck'

    FLICK FILOSOPHER Film Review: 'Stuck'

    Stuck — the second feature from director Michael Berry, based on a stage play by Riley Thomas — is pure gritty urban joy, all marvelous, touching songs about grief, sacrifice, mistrust, misunderstanding, and other intimate perils.
  • SLAMDANCE Film Review: 'Instant Dreams'

    SLAMDANCE Film Review: 'Instant Dreams'

    Instant Dreams, director Willem Baptist’s documentary ode to the Polaroid, is as enchanting and magical as its subject. Like photography, Instant Dreams’ story inhabits the real, the hyperreal and the unreal. It chronicles the origin and rise of Edwin Land’s history-changing invention, hailed in 1937 as the future.
  • THR Film Review: 'Naples in Veils'

  • ARTSBEATLA Film Review: 'CATCHING SIGHT OF THELMA AND LOUISE'

    ARTSBEATLA Film Review: 'CATCHING SIGHT OF THELMA AND LOUISE'

    Director/producer Jennifer Townsend was not in the film business at all when she first encountered the now-classic road movie Thelma & Louise in 1991. Profoundly moved by what she’d seen, she wondered if others had been similarly affected by the film.
  • MOVIE NATION Film Review: 'AMERICAN RELAPSE'

    MOVIE NATION Film Review: 'AMERICAN RELAPSE'

    Eye-opening and damning, “American Relapse” is a blunt force look at the “cycle” of opioid addiction and the ways this American epidemic has been monetized by those with an eye towards making a buck out of any bad thing that happens.
  • VARIETY Film Review: 'TIGERLAND'

    VARIETY Film Review: 'TIGERLAND'
