BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 02/24/2017

Film Title: Get Out

GET OUT

“I would barely call GET OUT a horror movie, that’s simply dumbing it down to one particular adjective. This is a risk in modern day cinema, and a damn great one at that.”- Nick Casaletto, We Live Entertainment

“Mixing horror, humor, and satirical perspective with an artful ease, GET OUT cements Jordan Peele as a real deal to watch in the cinematic realm.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“As far as judging based purely on its cinematic qualities, GET OUT is a movie that’s well done and sure to get reactions from its audience.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“It’s to Peele’s credit that he’s able to set up certain expectations and then pull the rug out from under us.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Peele’s cutting use of iconography is what you’ll be discussing when the movie’s over. ” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“When we’re exposed to the whole truth of GET OUT’s race dynamic, it feels like a gut punch instead of a bombshell.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

 

TheRedTurtle_clip_attackTHE RED TURTLE

“Filled with magical realism, THE RED TURTLE is a meditative feature that’s concerned with nature and the natural rhythms and wonders of life.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“…a masterclass in intricacies and what it means to tell a full and honest story, one that is both celebratory of human nature but also can pinpoint the flaws which lead to our own distress.” – Allyson Johnson, The Young Folks

“You can unpack its subtleties and puzzle over its meaning as much as you like, but in the end you’re better off just surrendering to the experience of watching it.” – Andy Crump, The Playlist

“KEDI may not be an obvious head scratcher, but it may be the film you need to take a deep breath and think for a moment that everything is going to be okay.” – Allyson Johnson, The Young Folks

“The inspiring tale of how a talking canine learns to follow his dreams AND saves a small village from genocide through some sweet, sweet guitar licks.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

 

 

Bitter-Harvest-2Max-IronsBITTER HARVEST

“The film begins and ends with the tolling of a village bell used to warn the peaceful inhabitants of danger. We should be listening to that bell here in the Western world of the 21st century, and taking it seriously.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
