Blindspotting (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2018 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

I love Blindspotting. It’s the kind of film I want to stand up and cheer the moment the end credits come up on the screen, the type of nail-biting human drama I wish studios made more of and the kind of incisive, take-no-prisoners satire viewers of all persuasions owe it to themselves to take a chance on and see.

“Eighth Grade” – Interview with Bo Burnham and Elsie Fisher

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 26th, 2018 - Film Festivals Interviews

“I haven’t worked on a project really where the message of it mattered so much to me. It felt like the message I wanted when I was in that time period. To get to do that for other people and even for myself? I loved that. Part of working on this was realizing that it’s chill to be who you are. It felt very good to say that.”
– Elsie Fisher

Eighth Grade (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 25th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

While my own middle school experiences aren’t ones I’d want to relive, watching Eighth Grade is a trip back to school I’d be happy to take whenever the opportunity to do so might arise.

Yet it is Phoenix, almost all on his own, who makes Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot something that borders on essential.

The Devil’s Doorway (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 19th, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Newcomer Aislinn Clarke’s confident and sinister debut feature The Devil’s Doorway is a clever twist on the “found footage” subgenre of horror films, her movie more concerned with her three principal characters and their twisting moral ambiguities than it is in unleashing a bunch of nonsensical cheap scares.

Hearts Beat Loud (2018)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 22nd, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

With Hearts Beat Loud, Haley has composed a universally accessible human drama of music, romance and family that brought tears to my eyes while at the same time had me wanting to leap out of my seat in order to give it a hearty cheer.
