Screener Squad: What Remains

What Remains Movie Review

WHAT REMAINS MOVIE REVIEW

Writer/Director Ran Huang and Co-Writer Megan Everett-Skarsgård presents What Remains, based on a true story mystery of a man confessing to multiple murders that he may have not committed. The film begins with a chance at a new life as Mads Lake (Gustaf Skarsgård) is released on a probationary period but the outside world is far less kind then the chains and shackles of solitary confinement. After returning to psychiatric care via the legal system, Mads confesses to even more murders. His primary caregiving psychiatrist Anna Rudebeck (Andrea Riseborough) and tired old alcoholic detective Soren Rank (Stellan Skarsgård) want to understand Mads to unearth his past and discover the truth behind his actions and trauma. The three enter a cycle of misery and lean on each other at their worst moments, as the past comes calling but leaves no message at the beep. Bradly, Jason, and Rae break out their monocles and decipher how much of this “based on a true story”  film stays with the facts, ponder the power of a film that refuses to adhere to any genre or niche, then deduce whether or not a documentary would have been the right call for such a mystery. Is it true crime or a waste of time? It’s just us with Justice on one of us dot net.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)

Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.

 

 

Jason Fisher (Screener Squad)

Born in New Orleans, brought up in Austin, and raised by cinema, Jason is an animator and filmmaker with decades of experience working in the arts. Before even graduating high school, Jason was animating and podcasting with the Austin-based movie review site Spill.com. From this formative experience, he gained an eclectic taste and knowledge that he carried into a rich career working in the animation industry. Notable projects include Marvel’s Hit Monkey, FXX’s Legion, Netflix’s America: The Motion Picture, and working for companies including Nickelodeon, Rooster Teeth, PBS Kids, and many more. As a cineast, it’s his belief that his favorite movie is one that he hasn’t seen yet. His thirst for great art is unquenchable, whether that means consuming it or contributing to it himself.

 

 

Lyrae Anderson (Screener Squad)

You can call me Rae. You can also call me a film lover. I’ll watch it all — small screen; big screen, and everything in between. I have attended and worked for Fantastic Fest and South by Southwest for many years. I married a film geek as well. While we don’t agree on everything, we agree on our love of movies.
