    Unrest

    ★★★½

    A completely frightening look at one of the least understood but most devastating diseases known to mankind. This is a great documentary explaining the hell one goes through when inflicted with this terrible fate. It’s depressing, empathy driving and a look at how The Nightmare should have been made. The fact that the director of this film is inflicted with it, only adds miles to the movie’s already urgent call to be seen and shared.

    After starting out with such humble beginnings at Troma Entertainment, James Gunn hits it big with Marvel Studio's WTF fest, Guardians of the Galaxy. This Firefly meets Star Wars meets The Expendables mash up is Kevin Feige's first film in his cinematic universe not held down by any expectations what so ever. This being said, it has full artistic control over itself in every way. Because this movie has no chance of making fanboys leave the theater saying, "That's not…
