Landline (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 11th, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Landline gets what makes people tick, doesn’t shy from reveling in the good, bad and ugly as well as all the gradations hiding in the various grey areas. It’s very good, and as such ends up being a movie I can’t help but hope finds its audience.

Step (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 11th, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

For these young women, Step is life, but it is also something to strive for, to believe in and to use as a means to make the leap into the unknown, hopefully to even greater achievements. For the viewer, Step is a wonder, and for the life of me I now can’t imagine a world where this documentary does not exist.

“Step” – Interview with Gari “Coach G” McIntyre

“Landline” – Interview with Gillian Robespierre, Abby Quinn and Jenny Slate

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 9th, 2017 - Film Festivals Interviews

“It always excites us to share a story that doesn’t feel super developed in our culture and in our narratives on our screen, I feel like it’s also really nice to tell stories about women and for women…I think that I like making art for us and not for them. I’m not trying to divide genders here, but I do feel like the stories that I gravitate towards are stories about women.”

“City of Ghosts” – Interview with Matthew Heineman

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 31st, 2017 - Film Festivals Interviews

“They’re not trained journalists. They wouldn’t necessarily even call themselves journalists. You know, they’re media activists, or citizen journalists. But they’re filling a void where ISIS has completely blacked out all information coming in and out of that city. If it wasn’t for them, we’d have no idea what’s happening there.”

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 28th, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Lady Macbeth strikes hard and digs deep, Pugh’s performance alone a superlative bit of ruthless magnificence that lives up to the title character’s Shakespearean namesake with unforgettable viciousness.

A Ghost Story (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 21st, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

A Ghost Story is about patience, it is about resilience, it is about who we are as human beings on levels physical, spiritual, practical and metaphorical, about how we drift through the minutes of our lifetimes not ever truly realizing how precious a single second is until it is possible too late to matter.
