Mary Queen of Scots

It's a film of two faces, one exposed and glowing, the other blotted out entirely, its vulnerability painted over.

Alan Scherstuhl, Denver Westword

It's a Disaster

It's the hell of couples brunch fully realized. I was amused as much as galled by the unapologetic narcissism and stunning lack of empathy exhibited by the characters of It's A Disaster. These are people who shouldn't survive the apocalypse.

Di Golding, Dear Cast and Crew

Spinning Plates

The flavours, though lovingly prepared, don't always compliment one another. Perhaps it's because when we get to the 'and then the unthinkable happened' portion of the documentary, the lack of balance left an odd aftertaste.

Di Golding, Dear Cast and Crew


Da Sweet Blood of Jesus

DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS is an admirable failure by a legendary filmmaker.

James Clay, Fresh Fiction


At the heart of the film is the struggle of a man attempting to assimilate vastly different groups while keeping true to his own identity.

James Clay, Fresh Fiction

King Cohen: The Wild World of Filmmaker Larry Cohen

Cohen's footprint is all over the film industry today and his vigilante approach to the art form would never fly by today's standards, but damn if KING COHEN isn't an inspiring film.

James Clay, Fresh Fiction
