    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    When the ROCKY score drops right after Apollo admits his deepest fear and is met with love and admiration from Rocky, and then stands up for the last round of his unwinnable fight, proving himself a worthy successor to his father’s name and his mentor’s status…

    that, to me, is cinema.

  • Manhunter



    Pour one out for the Brian Cox HANNIBAL franchise we could’ve had.

    When the laws of man fail you, sometimes you just have to turn to the laws of the devil.

    Not as satisfying a revenge film as its first act teases, but a compelling and elegantly staged supernatural drama nonetheless.

  • Animalia



    INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS by way of THE BIRDS as a road movie about female subjugation in Morocco and class warfare is every bit as messy and interesting as it sounds. Some absolute dynamite set pieces amidst a meandering plot. Director Sofia Alaoui is a remarkable talent.
