  • The Autopsy

    The Autopsy

    ★★★★

    Now we're talkin’. The Autopsy is much more my speed. Tonally consistent, well-acted, and confidently directed by David Prior. This one feels like a forbidden episode of the X-Files. More please.

  • The Stranger

    The Stranger

    ★★★½

    Breathe in the clean air, and breathe out the blackness.

    The Stranger is a dark, sparse film with two incredible lead performances. It manages to keep the viewer on a knife’s edge without drawing a drop of blood. Sean Harris is phenomenal as Henry Teague, a murder suspect befriended by Mark, an undercover cop played by the increasingly impressive Joel Edgerton. Most of The Stranger is encased in grey shadow and darkness (even scenes in broad daylight don't feel particularly bright)…

    “Look ma no hands”

    Second viewing and I still can't figure out whether I'm offended or blown away. I think I've settled on a happy marriage of the two. A vile behemoth of a film that maintains a surprising amount of depth while never straying from its exploitative roots.

    I feel like this is the set Tom Hanks was supposed to be on instead of Elvis.

    I could only make it through 30 minutes before wanting to Grimcutty my wrists. Awful stuff. 

    I’ll leave it to a braver viewer to finish it.
