FILM REVIEW: PORNO (FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL)

As FANTASIA 2019 rolls on, we bring you another review from the front lines. Our first review showed you the cerebral, absurdist comedy THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE, which was admittedly NOT a horror film…So for our follow-up review we’ve plunged right into the heart of a faith-based comedic horror extravaganza

FILM REVIEW: THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE (FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL)

THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE is a film that is difficult to classify. It walks that razor-thin line between genres, making it a film that exists on its own little island of awkward. What I can safely tell you is that it’s funny as hell, a little disturbing, and well…just plain

FILM REVIEW: HIGH ON THE HOG

It’s that magical time of year again, and no, I’m not talking about Christmas. Instead I’m referring to spring time in the Rockies. It’s time for sunshine, long hikes in the mountains, and a little “holiday” celebrated on April 20th. That’s right folks… 4/20! Being a Denver (where weed has

Recently I was given a sneak peek of 20th CENTURY FAUX, the newest short film compilation by filmmakers Will Blank & Jake Bradbury. I admit that I was a newcomer to their work, but from what I’ve seen, it looks like these two have a bright future. FEAR FOREVER was

FILM REVIEW: THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT

Last week I was treated to the one-night-only director’s cut screening of Lars von Trier’s newest film THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT (THTJB).It was a challenging film on many levels, and even as I sit here writing this, I know that this review alone may rub people the wrong way.
