Movie Review: Blood Father (2016)

As the ragged and haggard anti-hero in Jean-Fran├žois Richet’s rollicking grind-house showcase Blood Father, lead character John Link is a lost wrecking ball in search of raging redemption despite whatever erratic and intrinsic demons that beleaguered his unstable psyche. Well, this description can also be applied to the relentlessly problematic performer playing this graying, leather-skinned…

Movie Review: Room (2015)

He’s a courtroom monster who has no problem talking his way out of defending a…
