by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 1st, 2018 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Nothing happens here that doesn’t feel as if Schrader is in completely control of the outcome, the inherent emotional complexities of First Reformed revealing themselves with a pointed didacticism that’s frequently compelling.

On Chesil Beach (2017)

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

But On Chesil Beach frustratingly can’t build on this gobsmack of a revelation, Cooke muting the inherent emotional explosiveness of Florence and Edward’s journey to the point it disappears just at the point it needed to be building to a crescendo.

Wind River (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 25th, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Sheridan takes a rather simple story and spins it right on its head, crafting a saga about fatherhood, family, race, poverty, isolation, determination and life in America today that’s as haunting as anything I’ve seen this year.
