The Woman in the Fifth (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 15th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The Woman in the Fifth is as coldly obtuse and emotionally distant as anything I’ve had the misfortune to come across this year.

Your Sister’s Sister (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 15th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

Your Sister’s Sister has something universal to say about relationships, about the bonds between siblings, about how it is we choose to live our lives and the mysterious nature of the dreams, aspirations and demons that drive us forward.

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 8th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Madagascar 3, for all its chaos, for all its weirdly absurdist flights of fancy, still becomes the most relatable, dare I say the most human, of the trilogy, something I never would have expected before the movie started.

Paul Williams Still Alive (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 8th, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

If Paul Williams Still Alive does feel a bit slight that has nothing to do with the man himself. A titanic figure in the music industry, he saunters through the film with a relaxed grace that’s mesmerizing.

Prometheus (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 8th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where do we go from here? Are we alone in the universe? These are just a few of the questions Prometheus asks, the end product not so much reaching for answers as it is more interested in reigniting the cooling embers of an age-old debate.

“Safety Not Guaranteed” – Interview with Colin Trevorrow

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 7th, 2012 - Film Festivals Interviews

“Safety Not Guaranteed is personal. It is intimate. It is about the emotional needs the idea of time travel satisfies. I feel it is an honest movie that speaks to what people are going through in their everyday lives. It doesn’t feel manufactured.”
– Colin Trevorrow

The Intouchables (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 1st, 2012 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The Intouchables balances precipitously at the edge of melodramatic excess yet somehow never falls over into that particular ravine.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 1st, 2012 - Movie Reviews

While not without faults, this feminist take on the classic Grimm tale is undeniably bewitching, and of 2012’s dueling adaptations, both of which ended up worthy of my attention, Snow White and the Huntsman is the fairest of the duo and the one I look forward to revisiting in the future.
