“While it may hit more than a few bumps along the way to its conclusion, there is a real sense of mystery and tension that underscores just about every scene in FANTASY ISLAND.” – John Black, Gruesome Magazine

 

Screen_Shot_2020_02_14_at_1.42.30_PM.0PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE

“The term “masterpiece” gets thrown around hyperbolically these days, but PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE is, quite honestly, the most perfectly calibrated and emotionally cathartic film I saw last year.” – Charlie Nash, Edge Boston

“PORTRAIT OF A LADY ON FIRE’s central feature is its love story, which is as much a story of gender politics, life as a woman under patriarchal rule, queer identity, and what it’s like to truly see, and be seen by, another person as it is a visual lesson on the artist’s process.” – Andy Crump, The Week

 

 

BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 02/07/2020

BIRDS OF PREY15786083839194.0

“BIRDS OF PREY may not turn out to be the worst film of the year, but it is the nadir thus far.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“If you’re just going to see this for its mature rating, its feminist message, or maybe some of the characters, there’s a small possibility that you may be satisfied with what you get out of BIRDS OF PREY. If you require even a little bit more than that, you’ll likely regret sitting down and giving this soulless piece of cinema a chance.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

THE ASSISTANThero_assistant-movie-review-2020

“THE ASSISTANT understands well how men manipulate levers of power to exploit their subordinates while buying their secrecy — or if not “buy,” then certainly “compel.” – Andy Crump, Mic.com
