    The Black Phone

    Ethan Hawke was bound to play the joker eventually.

    Scott Derrickson is a very poor filmmaker. One of the main characters dreams in super 8 because… it’s the 70s? 

    And you’re telling me, in the midst of these kidnappings, nobody in town ever called the police on the ominous black van with the word “Abracadabra” painted on the side?

    Crafted in the typical house-style of most Blumhouse movies. That is to say: hackneyed.

    Imagine electing to watch this because you like movies about gambling.

    SXSW 2022. Complex and beautiful. Crows are not always black. Faith is complicated, often convoluted… so is this film in the most elegant way.

    The Passing

    ★★★★½

    A moving, unshakable, idiosyncratic piece of regional low-budget, genre-bending filmmaking.

    As digital filmmaking technology advanced, American indies lost their Punk. I’ll take the inelegant, underexposed 16mm photography of this deeply personal film over the 4K fake-scope digital filmmaking of your average Sundance rom-com “studio calling card” any day.
