Wish Upon (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 14th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

Filled with unlikable characters, most of whom are deserving of their bloody just deserts, Wish Upon is hard to sit through, and if I had a wish of my own to toss its way it likely would be the desire that it not have been made in the first place.

“The Little Hours” – Interview with Jeff Baena & Aubrey Plaza

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 12th, 2017 - Film Festivals Interviews

“I just love that Jeff made a movie like this right now. I think it’s rare that people are making stuff like this, taking such risks when making movies. After watching this and seeing that, I hope that more people will be inspired to go crazy and make weird stuff. That would be great.”

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 11th, 2017 - Blu-ray and DVD

James Gray’s The Lost City of Z showcases the talented filmmaker at the very top of his game. Percy Fawcett’s story has energized the director, his fascination with the explorer, as well as author David Grann’s source material, obvious in each and every frame of the film. An extraordinary achievement.

“The Journey” – Interview with Nick Hamm

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 10th, 2017 - Film Festivals Interviews

“The movie shows two very brave people who choose not to do that, taking their constituents with them on a perilous journey towards compromise. It seems to me that’s what we’re ultimately celebrating with the picture; compromise and the ability to live together.”

Darkness Rising (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 7th, 2017 - Movie Reviews

While there’s no reason to hate Darkness Rising, I can’t say there’s any reason to like it, either, and like a ghost in the night transitioning into the unknown by the time I finish writing this review it’s highly likely this film will have dissipated from my memory altogether.

The Journey does not claim to be historical fact, but that doesn’t make the creatively intelligent fiction it muses on any less fascinating.

The Little Hours (2017)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - July 7th, 2017 - Film Festivals Movie Reviews

The Little Hours is an anarchic fit of physical, sexual and verbal madness that only gets more explosively hysterical as events progress.
