MOVIE REVIEW: “Feedback,” or when the past stands, waiting, no matter how good you have it now

Eddie Marsan, Paul Anderson and Ivana Baquero
Directed by Pedro C. Alonso

How far would we go to protect our lives and careers and to shelter our loved ones from pain? To what lengths would we go to bury our sins? What would be the consequence if those sins are revealed? These are the questions asked and answered by the New Mexico/U.K. co-production “Feedback,” a tense and well-acted thriller that explodes with the ferocity of a shotgun blast. The cinematic ... more >

NOW SHOWING: BOMBSHELL

MOVIE REVIEW: Richard Stanley’s “Color out of Space”

Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson and Madeleine Arthur
Directed by Richard Stanley

“Color Out of Space” is director Richard Stanley’s first feature film since his attempt at adapting “The Island of Dr. Moreau” back in 1996.

At Sundance, this week, I was able to get some facetime with the makers and stars of a select few films on the press lines (while being shut out of a few others, naturally). Andy Samberg was in town for the premiere of “Palm Springs,” for which he both starred in and acted as producer. The film stars Cristin Milioti (“The ... more >

SUNDANCE INTERVIEW: “Assassins” is ripe for a series, it’s got so many twists and turns (director Ryan White)

Distributed by Magnolia Pictures

Park City, Ut. - To even describe it seems ludicrous: recruit two young women, who think they will be part of a hidden-camera prank show, to inadvertently assassinate Kim Jong-nam, the dissident half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. In an airport. In broad daylight. With hundreds of witnesses and cameras recording it all. This isn’t the plot for a spy thriller, but rather the ... more >
