    Lena Dunham’s trademark ultra-modern script and strokes make for a winky-annoying horny hodgepodge of sexploration, dirty secrets, and naive optimism. Every character is going through it in one way or another, and here we are all splashing around in the same drama pool kind of having a romping good time getting more than our feet wet.

    S21: The Khmer Rouge Death Machine

    ★★★★

    It really throws you for a shocking loop how ingrained and warped the practically guiltless “I was just doing my job” mindset of perpetrators of mass killings was at the time, and remains to this day. The filmmaker elicits these feelings head-on, not thru archival footage, but by having the prison guards actually reenact their roles. Contrasting that with victims’ present-day traumas, and then bringing everyone together in the same room without manufacturing any tension, makes this all the more powerful.

    Untold: Breaking Point

    ★★★★

    A thorough examination of what it means to always be knocking at the door of athletic superiority but perhaps knowing that it comes at too high of a personal cost. In this case, mental health issues are exposed as just as normal of a challenge as physical injury.

    ★★★★½

    A spectacular, absurdist film that lives in its own world and really means it. This is life's ultimate power play horror.
