Movie Review: My Scientology Movie (2015)

There’s been a renewed interest in the Church of Scientology and that’s probably because of the commercial success of HBO’s “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” and A&E’s “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath” television series (there are a few other documentaries on the topic, but they mostly regurgitate the same talking points)….

Movie Review: They’re Watching (2016)

After ten years in L.A., Becky Westlake (Brigid Brannagh, “The Nurse”), a successful artist and potter, has decided to venture out of her comfort zone in search of the perfect place to start over.

Movie Review: Nola and the Clones (2016)

Writer-director Graham Jones (“The History Student,” “The Randomers,” “How to Cheat in the Learning Certificate”) can be astutely described as a lyrical Irish filmmaker with moving narratives that seem so personal and profound in dramatic simplicity.

Tom McCarthy’s (“The Cobbler”) Spotlight, however, reminds us of what it was…

But while this basic description holds true,…

Movie Review: Calvary (2014)

In a world grown cynical, decency stands out, but often only to be mocked and abused. In Georges Bernanos’ novel The Diary of a Country Priest, a sickly, humble, and idealistic young priest pays the ultimate price for the spiritual lethargy of his parish, while Father James Lavelle (Brendan Gleeson) in John Michael McDonagh’s brilliant…

Red Band Movie Trailer: Red State (2011)

No Jay or Silent Bob here. Red State breaks away from Kevin Smith’s comfort zone, representing his first foray into the horror genre. The hook? Extreme Christian fundamentalism in the heartland of America. Three teens find themselves captive of a Waco-like cult intent on changing the world they live in any way necessary. It’s not…
