‘The Survivalist’ Review

1 Submitted by on Mon, 22 May 2017, 13:59

And make no mistake, being the most ominous line in this movie is no easy feat. A bleak and immovable film, The Survivalist never once cracks a smile or allows for any illusions of joy to set in, only Continue Reading...

This has been a disappointing Oscar season so far. Great films like 20th Century Women almost got completely snubbed in favor of films like Lion. Sing Street didn’t get a Best Original Song nod, and there were many other cinematic crimes that only I and the lovely people who care about films seem to recognize. But for me, the biggest problem Continue Reading...
