It (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 11th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

I’m ready to head back to Derry for the next chapter of this story right this second. The death lights are calling; floating into the theatre to give It a look an experience most won’t soon forget.

I Do…Until I Don’t (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Bell is also unafraid to speak brutal, stark truths when the moment calls for them, finding humor in tragedy and pathos in merriment in ways that are continually inspiring. If I Do…Until I Don’t isn’t completely successful, that doesn’t mean it still isn’t without merit, and in the end becomes the type of small-scale independent comedy I could easily see myself warming up to more and more as time goes by.

Polina (2016)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2017 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

The profound beauty of what happens during this last modern dance ballet encapsulates everything Müller and Preljocaj have been building towards flawlessly, ultimately making Polina the type of unexpected marvel that keeps me heading back to the theatre time and time again. I love this movie. More importantly, I cannot wait to see it again.

Unlocked (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 1st, 2017 - Movie Reviews

But Rapace is excellent as Alice, the original Lisbeth Salander bringing the same sort of energy, emotion and gravitas to Unlocked that she brought to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Leap! (2016)

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

Leap! showcases loads of potential, and no question its female-driven story of accomplishment and resilience has plenty of value. But neither of those elements is enough to overcome all of the missteps, the resulting film a substandard dance of aggravation that I’m still moderately upset about.

The Only Living Boy in New York (2017)

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

While I don’t think people should rush out and give The Only Living Boy in New York an immediate look, I certainly wouldn’t begrudge anyone from doing so if the opportunity to snag a cheap second-run matinee ticket might arise, Thomas’s story having just enough in the way of merit to warrant a cursory glance.

Patti Cake$ soars into the stratosphere like a shooting star spurting truth in its wake as it streaks across the sky, this drama a stunning, entertainingly electrifying crowd-pleaser deserving of a standing ovation.

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.

In This Corner of the World (2016)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 18th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Perfectly animated, emotionally pure, In This Corner of the World is an outright marvel, watching it come to life as it does with such authentically subtle exactitude an extraordinary achievement to be sure.
