Raw: Film Review

The Eyes of my Mother: Film Review

The Eyes of my Mother: Film Review

There are many things one should say about The Eyes of My Mother, director Nicolas Pesce’s dark & disturbing debut feature, but it’s perhaps best to begin by declaring that this is not a film for the faint of heart. Indeed, even those with an unyielding tolerance for visual horror ...

Prevenge: Film Review

Wyndham Hacket Pain @WyndhamHP It must be hard enough to write, direct, and star in a film at the best of times, so I can only imagine how difficult it must have been for Alice Lowe to do all these things while heavily pregnant. Prevenge has a simple but interesting ...
