    The Wind

    ★★

    ‪THE WIND is an isolated demonic horror film set in the 1800s West. It has a stripped down plot, with conventional scares & unconventional pacing. Its themes of isolation & trauma are nothing new. I won’t lie, I‘m a bit let down but director Emma Tammi shows promise regardless.‬

    ★★★★

    With US, Jordan Peele has peeled back the layers of our minds, forcing us to look inward at the one thing that scares us the most & that we‘re not willing to confront: ourselves. Basically, we’re all fucked. A brilliant vision with haunting visuals, fun performances, precise editing & an awesome score! I’ll be revisiting this one many times over the years to unlock its many mysteries. Is it better than Get Out? Who the hell cares? All that matters is Jordan Peele has avoided the sophomore slump and is on his way to a historic filmmaking career!

    ★★★★

    Jim Cummings gives one of the best performances of the year in THUNDER ROAD. I was floored by his commitment to all aspects of production both in front & behind the camera. The film presents the ups and downs of life with such emotional honesty, you’ll either laugh or cry till it hurts.

    Serenity

    SERENITY is so laughably implausible, over the top & self serious that it actually manages to be both embarrassing for all involved & fascinating in a shipwreck sort of a way for its sheer bewilderment. Steven Knight swung for the fences with this one & he strikes out gloriously.
