  • The Oath

    The Oath


    This political satire hits so close to home - it's brilliant premise so plausible, and the character interactions so uncomfortably real, it can be like staring into the sun watching it all play out. As the movie escalates into the realm of fiction, it's almost a relief. Bonus points for not succumbing to the "both sides" fallacy while still having interesting things to say about how we engage with others.

  • Extraction



    Sam Hargrave and crew extract the most out of the gorgeously squalid streets of Dhaka, with fantastic action choreography and tight direction.

    Short Term 12


    An intimate and honest character study of a group of teens and their caretakers, the problems they face, and the scars they carry with them. Few films feel this raw and authentic, with great performances all around including the teen actors. Confidently written and directed, one of the best films of the year.

    The Invisible Man


    While the titular antagonist is invisible, Whannel's superb direction is on full display.
