“The Journey” – Interview with Nick Hamm

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 10th, 2017 - Film Festivals Interviews

“The movie shows two very brave people who choose not to do that, taking their constituents with them on a perilous journey towards compromise. It seems to me that’s what we’re ultimately celebrating with the picture; compromise and the ability to live together.”

Darkness Rising (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 7th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

While there’s no reason to hate Darkness Rising, I can’t say there’s any reason to like it, either, and like a ghost in the night transitioning into the unknown by the time I finish writing this review it’s highly likely this film will have dissipated from my memory altogether.

The Journey (2016)

The Journey does not claim to be historical fact, but that doesn’t make the creatively intelligent fiction it muses on any less fascinating.

The Little Hours (2017)

The Little Hours is an anarchic fit of physical, sexual and verbal madness that only gets more explosively hysterical as events progress.

Lost in Paris (2016)

As bits of fluffy fun are concerned Lost in Paris is a dance of delicious amusements, watching it an absolute pleasure I’m certain to indulge in whenever the opportunity to do so might fortuitously arise.

The Zookeeper’s Wife (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 5th, 2017 - Blu-ray and DVD

The Zookeeper’s Wife may not be the most groundbreaking drama, but what it sets out to do, thanks to Niki Caro’s confidently authoritative direction and Jessica Chastain’s spellbinding performance, it still manages to accomplish with breathless simplicity.

Band Aid (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

[Having] us walk the same mile they do in shoes they themselves are wearing is a therapeutically evocative means to an exceedingly profound end, Band Aid hitting so many right notes any false ones it might inadvertently strike are lost in a symphony of reflective magnificence I could listen to for days on end with no hesitation whatsoever.

The Beguiled (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 30th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Sofia Coppola’s (Somewhere, Lost in Translation) take on The Beguiled is a decidedly feminist, unnervingly funny foray into Southern Gothic terrors that’s as exquisitely made as it is oddly problematic.
