    Yellow Bus


    In one of many poignant scenes in Fran Kranz’ harrowing school shooting drama Mass, a victim’s mother pontificates that her son’s death should mean something.

    A promising debut feature exploring familiar themes surrounding coming of age, marriage and interracial differences. Meredith Hama-Brown and her cast show good instincts in balancing the script's emotional restraint and heightened melodrama. The delicate perspective of the family's younger daughter is the film's highlight.

    Wasn't entirely sold on the supernatural elements of this otherwise compelling immigrant tale. Still, it's a promising first feature that utilizes its cultural influences distinctively and effectively. Special kudos to the sound design team.

    Was unsure about this at first, but this observational documentary won me over as it navigates the social ladder towards the "Chinese Dream." Mesmerizing footage, skillfully assembled. As we witness this society aim to compete with American levels of consumption, it'll have you wondering if this is a race to the top, or bottom?
