4x4 Fantastic Fest Review

Mariano Cohn’s 4×4, which sadly is not a lumberjacked themed slasher, brings fresh conceptualization to the single-setting thriller format. Those suffering from “Amaxophobia,” peel off in the opposite direction. Ever get stuck in highway traffic, roasting on the interstate with no air conditioning and mounting frustrations? Cohn constructs a far scarier transportation lock-in scenario where moral quandaries rev all the right engines. Maximum tension without burning any rubber. Read More »

the golden glove review

Fatih Akin‘s The Golden Glove is the rawest, most real, and most brutal serial killer movie since Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. Unflinchingly gruesome, and covered in a thick layer of grime, Akin’s film tells the true story of Fritz Honka, a murderer who stalked 1970s Hamburg, preying on the weak, the old, and the destitute. Honka was able to easily navigate amongst the downtrodden because he was one of them himself – a physically unappealing loner with a serious drinking problem. The Golden Glove has seemingly taken Honka’s inner and outer ugliness and projected it large on the screen. Buried under gruesome makeup, actor Jonas Dassler transforms into Honka, creating one of cinema’s most repulsive-yet-fascinating characters.

dickinson trailer

Apple TV+’s upcoming comedy series Dickinson doesn’t do subtlety. The first trailer, which previewed a period drama rife with anachronisms and punk-rock rebellion, hinted as much — bucking perceptions of the literary icon Emily Dickinson as some kind of buttoned-up lady. Instead, as portrayed by Oscar-nominated Hailee Steinfeld, she’s a modern rebel who spouts words like “dude” and grapples with the concept of Death, which happens to look a lot like Wiz Khalifa. Watch the official Dickinson trailer below.
