Movie Review: On the Rocks (2020)

“Nothing of him that doth fade / But doth suffer a sea-change / Into something rich and strange” — William Shakespeare, “The Tempest” Film critic Roger Ebert once said, “All good art is about something deeper than it admits.” On the surface, Sofia Coppola’s (“The Beguiled”) On the Rocks is a light comedy about a…

Movie Review: Tell Me I Love You (2020)

Fiona MacKenzie’s Tell Me I Love You is a romantic comedy about three best friends who make music together. Ben (Sam Clark, “A Deadly Dance”), Ally (Paulina Cerrilla, “$elfie Shootout”) and Melanie (Kaniehtiio Horn, “Death Wish”) also live in the same house, though this is temporary.

Movie Review: The Nest (2020)

Movie Review: Paradise Hills (2019)

When looking upon the first frame of Paradise Hills, the feature directorial debut of Spanish filmmaker Alice Waddington, your eyes are thrown into a wonderland of bizarre beauty. With a crisp sci-fi world of equal parts whimsy and despair, this feminist fairy tale has all of the looks of something remarkable, but lacks the proper…

Movie Review: Blood Child (2017)

An American couple in Singapore suffers a miscarriage and returns to the United States — but did they bring something with them?
