Movie Review: Glass (2019)

It would be an understatement to say that I have been merely looking forward to Glass. Its arrival was all I could think about since it was announced after the release of “Split,” a movie that came out three years ago. Having watched “Unbreakable” all those years ago, I felt my mind break a little…

Movie Review: Mara (2018)

Awakened in the night, young Sophie (Mackenzie Imsand) clutches her teddy bear and peers into the darkness of her room. She hears scary sounds and slips out of bed to investigate.

Lanthimos buries his satirical observations deep and then brushes away select portions of the surface to reveal grim…
