  • The Untamed

    The Untamed

    ★★★

    An unusual film about the invisible line between danger and desire, The Untamed is a throbbing metaphor for the primate hidden deep within the unconscious mind, drawing attention to the monster within all of us as tentacles ooze across skin, pulsating inside every orifice with a yearning for the pleasures of the flesh. Toying with the deepest and most reprehensible aspects of existence, the film transcends the restrictions of humanity, morality, and sexuality, throwing itself into the belly of the beast and waiting to be chosen as either partner or prey while entering into a bizarre science-fiction experiment.

  • The Dark Tower

    The Dark Tower

    ★★

    Closer to being an Uwe Boll alternative to The NeverEnding Story than the next Lord of the Rings movie, The Dark Tower tramples over thirty-five years of backstory, proving to be the very worst kind of dud as tens of thousands of pages fall down the drain and re-emerge bruised, broken, and utterly lost. Up there with the year’s cheesiest, The Dark Tower is an under-explored and oversold snoozefest with a paint-by-numbers screenplay that simply cannot be sold to those looking for something more than a cheap action movie.

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    A multidimensional masterwork of epic proportions, crossing the boundaries of space and time with a universal tale of discovery during moments of complete uncertainty. Strong-minded but tender in its depiction of solitude, time travel, and the power unconditional love, Interstellar is a cinematic page-turner and it’s assembled with religious ambition by Christopher Nolan whose transcendent take on Sci-Fi opens the door to a discussion worth having about the importance of family during times of crisis.

  • Nocturnal Animals

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★★★

    Revenge is a dish best served in hardback and Nocturnal Animals couldn’t be more audacious in its exploration of literary malevolence. In a time where subtweeting and unfriending have become the standard way to send a message about a failed relationship, a movie that dedicates an entire novel to the person who ruined an author’s life feels like a pretty contemptuous one.
