A Man Called Otto (2022)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - January 5th, 2023 - Movie Reviews

While far from the near-brilliance of Backman’s novel, A Man Called Otto is a nice adaptation with strong performances that kept me pleasantly entertained for most of its running time.

by Sara Michelle Fetters - December 2nd, 2022 - Movie Reviews

Violent Night does exactly what it sets out to do, and does so with panache, frivolity, and style.
