Movie Review: Destination Unknown (2017)

To find an uninteresting interview with a survivor of the holocaust is an impossible task. These are, after all, firsthand accounts of nightmares made real; memories from the extremist boundaries of the human experience. It’s akin to watching Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin discuss landing and walking on the moon, describing experiences…

Movie Review: Letters from Baghdad (2016)

“Lawrence of Arabia” is a respected title that conjures images of adventure, masculinity and the mystic charm of the Middle East. A film of epic proportions, it glamorized explorer T.E.

Movie Review: Uncertain (2015)

“Uncertain’s a good place to hide,” states a Texan police officer during the first moments of Ewan McNichol and Amanda Sandilands’ debut documentary Uncertain. A very uncanny name for a town stuck on the border of Louisiana and Texas, Uncertain welcomes a mere population of 94 residents and is home of prime fishing location, Caddo…
