Movie Review: The Similars (2015)

Isaac Ezban’s The Similars (Los Parecidos) is an inventive, daring psychological thriller about eight people stranded in a remote bus depot during a never-ending thunderstorm. It’s relatively short (89 minutes) and exquisitely sweet with intensity and mystery that grow with each passing moment. It’s dark, it’s rainy, and poor Ulises (Gustavo Sánchez Parra, “Get the…

Movie Review: Desierto (2015)

I’m thinking of a movie. It stars a man and a woman struggling against the elements to survive a vast, empty, lonesome, and perilous environment on their journey home.

Movie Review: The Shallows (2016)

Voices, tones, phrasings of a City that homes you as much as it repels you….

Movie Review: Sicario (2015)

Denis Villeneuve’s last film, 2013’s “Prisoners,” had everything: Gripping story; beautiful camerawork; and a great performance from Jake Gyllenhaal alongside Hugh Jackson. His follow-up Sicario only has the star-studded cast. Emily Blunt (“Edge of Tomorrow”) plays an FBI agent, Kate Macer, who enlists to join an escalating drug war between the U.S. and Mexico, in…

Movie Review: Machete Kills (2013)

I was always told that if there isn’t a lot to write about a subject, don’t tax the reader by padding out an article. Nothing could be truer of this advice than my review of the newest release, Machete Kills. I suppose some folks are going to criticize this critique because I do not appreciate…
