Perfect Sense (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - February 17th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Maybe Mackenzie’s latest minimalist high-concept opus will grow on me over time, will keep pounding against my psyche so it forces me to watch it again and reassess at a later date. Maybe a lot of things, but for right now I find Perfect Sense to be too ambiguous for its own good, and as doomsday scenarios go I’m not sure this is one I’ll ever be in the mood to contemplate again.

Marwencol (2010)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 24th, 2010 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Marwencol is a journey into the subconscious of a man who doesn’t always know just how loudly he is speaking, and as such it is an empathetic story of triumph that continues to evolve as each day passes making this film an emotionally stunning achievement that ranks as one of the finest documentaries, and one of the best motion pictures, I’ve seen in all of 2010.

The Hurt Locker (2008)

This is the real deal in action theatrics, Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker a pulse-pounding dynamo that puts all of Hollywood’s meager Summer 2009 offerings to immediate shame.
