Film Review: Family Portrait

Written and directed by Lucy Kerr, her film debut FAMILY PORTRAIT, is clearly personal but also somewhat universal. The film was ingeniously acquired by distribution company Factory 25 and has started screening in the US (details below). For a debut feature, Kerr has given us realism with the rug pulled

Film Review: The Complex Forms (Fantaspoa 2024)

As FANTASPOA Film Festival 2024 continues, its screenings stay true to its name. Most recently, a suspenseful fantasy from Italy, written and directed by Fabio D’Orta.

CUDDLY TOYS (UNNANMED FOOTAGE FESTIVAL)

This film boldly walks home alone at night with clenched keys in one fist and pepper spray in the other. The Sophomore film from Kansas Bowling (ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD) is a shockumentary for the ages. More important than any syllabus film that screened when I was in
