Little (2019)

Little is a big case of missed opportunities left to rot in the sun, the resulting stench so heinous here’s hoping I’ll never have to smell their like again anytime soon.

Chris Butler’s (ParaNorman) marvelously entertaining Missing Link is a joyous absurdist frolic that’s nothing short of wonderful.

a SIFF 2013 review Nothing Cheap About These Bleakly Satirical Thrills Cheap Thrills is the best movie you are likely going to be too scared to see. An eviscerating satirical assault on financial disparity and the smug, narcissistic tendencies of a seemingly uncaring elite coupled with the anything-goes neediness of a working class oftentimes willing […]

The Wolf of Wall Street

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 2nd, 2014 - Blu-ray and DVD

The Wolf of Wall Street showcases Martin Scorsese at the height of his cinematic powers, and as difficult as the movie can be at times, and as long as it is, this is still an uncompromising, deeply fascinating satirical black comedy I’m certain to be revisiting multiple times in the very near future.

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 14th, 2014 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

Anderson’s Budapest Hotel a Comedic Masterwork I’ve said more than a handful of times in the past that the works of Wes Anderson are arguably made for certain palates, each motion picture a fanciful journey into a highly stylized world acquired tastes adore while everyone else scratches their collective chins wondering what all the fuss […]

The Salt of Life (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 6th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

The Salt of Life may take some effort to get into but by the time the climax rolls around it becomes impossible to dislike, and I imagine on subsequent viewings this is the type of innately human journey that could grow on me to the point it becomes an essential one to take on a semi-regular basis.

Case de mi Padre (2012)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 16th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

I respected Casa de mi Padre far more than I enjoyed it, director and “SNL” veteran Matt Piedmont never striking the right balance between playing things straight while still wink-winking at the audience as if everyone knows just how absurd all of this is.

Friends with Kids (2011)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 9th, 2012 - Movie Reviews

If not for a final scene that left me vacillating between perplexed, bewildered, enchanted and annoyed (not necessarily in the that order), I’d probably be calling Jennifer Westfeldt’s directorial debut Friends with Kids an early contender for one of 2012’s best films.
