'Voyagers' Review - Lord of the Flies in Space Meets Calvin Klein Ad

Good and even great films can be hamstrung by going for a PG-13 rating, rather than letting go of the brake and running full steam towards the R-rating that Voyagers so clearly deserves.

'The Feast' SXSW Review - A Stunning and Brutal Last Supper

Arthouse horror is a subgenre that is difficult to master. It serves tough topics through rawness and bloody spheres. Lee Haven Jones’ debut feature, The Feast, is a decent entry into the sub-genre that mixes oddness with the vicious slits of gore while tackling class and identity.
