Movie Review: Deadly Virtues: Love.Honour.Obey.

Deadly Virtues: Love.Honour.Obey., the latest film from Ate De Jong — the Dutch veteran director whose career goes back to and beyond “Drop Dead Fred” — is a raw, creepy, silly, and ultimately fairly powerful captive thriller. De Jong makes good use of his deliberately bland single location and draws intense performances from his small,…

Movie Review: The Eyes of My Mother (2016)

A woman (Diana Agostini, “The Eyes of Van Gogh”) looks out the window of her remote hillside home.

Movie Review: The Similars (2015)

The ambitious undertaking by the quartet of filmmakers in Roxanne Benjamin,…

There is a subgenre within American independent cinema of rural Americana, films that depict a section of American society that exists between the familiar towering cityscapes of New York and Los Angeles and the empty expanse of the Western. Rather than being set in wild or agricultural areas, films like “Winter’s Bone,” “Frozen River” and…
