    Werewolves Within

    ★★★★

    Easily in my mind the best video game adaptation ever made. An absolute delight of a mystery caper set in snowy rural Vermont. The humor and scares work equally well and this is a great follow up to Josh Ruben’s debut, Scare Me. It shows his ability to play in a larger sandbox, his competence handling more characters, and incorporating the mystery component of the film. Josh Ruben is quickly becoming one of my favorite new directors and he’s already a master of tension and suspense.

  • Moxie

    Moxie

    ★★★

    The film wears its themes on its sleeve to its detriment. A little nuance and subtlety would have gone a long way but God am I a sucker for any film with Bikini Kill on the soundtrack, especially Moxie, which makes Bikini Kill and the Riot Grrrl punk movement so integral to its plot.
