21 Jun

Ana Lily Amirpour’s first feature, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, was a revelation in the 2015 film scene. Sleek, edgy, cool, with an inescapable socio-political message, it stood out from the crowd in a way that made many of us excited to see what the filmmaker would do next. No one could say it would be easy to top her first film, but Amirpour is definitely up for the challenge. Her new film, The Bad Batch, is longer, bigger budget, and has a much broader scope.

Personal Shopper: Dead and Living It, by Josh Long

15 Mar

As beautiful as Olivier Assayas’ films appear, they are certainly enigmatic. The filmmaker is not interested in a world that is clear, explicable, cut, and dried. It is intentional that his viewers leave with questions about what was real or imagined, and whether there can ever be a clear line between the two.

I’m sure that you, like me, are immediately wondering if Matt Ross’ Captain Fantastic has anything to do with Elton John’s classic album, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy.
