The Outpost wrecked me, and when it was over I was so exhausted and had gone through so many tissues I needed to slap a little water in my face to regain my composure.

Just Mercy (2019) (Blu-ray)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - April 7th, 2020 - Blu-ray and DVD

Just Mercy is a good film. Destin Daniel Cretton does a fine job balancing the many dramatic dynamics of his film, rarely allowing the proceedings to dip too far into maudlin melodrama or schmaltzy cliché, while at the same time Jaimie Foxx delivers one of the best performances of his Oscar-winning career.

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 23rd, 2019 - Interviews

“It’s about having the right people and doing a lot of preparation and planning. You just go through the choreography step by step so that everybody understands where they need to be at any given moment. As long as that’s adhered to we take most of the risk out of it.”

The Report (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - November 15th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

Burns has delivered a pulse-pounding procedural I could not resist, and I can’t help but think that audiences of all political persuasions will end up feeling the same just as long as they can put their differences aside in order to give The Report a look.

The Kill Team (2019)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - October 25th, 2019 - Movie Reviews

I admired a lot of what Krauss was attempting, and I certainly think his skills as a filmmaker are beyond reproach. But none of that means I also feel his debut The Kill List is essential, and even if this heinous historical event is worthy of exploration the director already did that back in 2013 with his stunning documentary. I can’t help but feel people should just watch that instead.

By the time the attack commenced my pulse was racing to such a degree I was worried I might be having a heart attack. Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty is a triumph. See it at once.
