    It Follows

    ★★★★

    A splendid little horror film. It gets all the little things right, playing with a nuance that leaves the film feeling very, very rich. There are layers to be found in It Follows, layers that give way to questions with no easy answers. All the whole there's a good ensemble cast, and plenty of well drawn out suspense.

    Heroin(e)

    ★★★

    A film where I think the subject matter made me think it's better than it actually was. The more I think about Heroin(e) the more I get upset about the lack of depth to be found. In the end that is all that matters in the film, and for the life of Shelden, she cannot find that depth. She tires to take on too much and ends up offering very little. But, the subject matter still draws me in, and made me keep watching.

    The House of the Devil

    ★★★★★

    The build and the denial is still remarkable. Ti West knows what the audience wants, and he continually builds to what they want but refuses to give it to them. Then when he finally does the release is intense. Splendidly crafted, acted, filmed, just all the stars.

  • Persona

    Persona

    ★★★★★

    Chillingly distant, yet resonantly warm, the paradox of the duality of humanity on display for all to see. Full review can be found at Bill's Movie Emporium.
