Before I Disappear

Before I Disappear takes Curfew’s fleet 19 minutes and adds another hour and change of disjointed and extraneous nonsense. Perhaps the screenplay was written to mimic the main character’s doped-out dissociative state, but it feels more like a collection of disconnected set-pieces than a cohesive film of its own. Less was more.” – Movie Mezzanine, 11/26/2014

Happy Valley

“Bar-Lev’s cameras simply place us at ground level in the midst of pastoral State College, PA as the revelations resound. The deeply unsettling Happy Valley is not a work of reportage so much as it’s a portrait of a community suffering from mass dementia. This is the scariest zombie movie I’ve seen in ages.” – Movie Mezzanine, 11/19/2014

Force Majeure

“I realize I’ve described Force Majeure as a comedy, but there aren’t any actual jokes, per se. The pitch-black humor erupts at odd moments during awkward pauses, prompted by Östlund’s droll, dispassionate gaze at all these roiling caveman emotions tamped down for appearances’ sake in such a fussy, affluent locale.” – North Shore Movies, 11/19/2014
