BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 04/06/2018

 

a-quiet-placeA QUIET PLACE

“Recent attempts at what might be called “smart horror,” like GET OUT and COLOSSAL, didn’t offer up documentary reality but they did have an internal logic for the world the films created. A QUIET PLACE fails this basic test.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“In spite of some significant issues, A QUIET PLACE will likely please most of the people who see it.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Tension defines this clever and well-crafted creature feature, and director John Krasinski has found a comfortable niche where his efforts as a director truly shine…” – Greg Vellante, Spectrum Culture

 

 

chappaquiddick-tiff-3CHAPPAQUIDDICK

“CHAPPAQUIDDICK is no hatchet job. Instead, it offers a serious meditation on the uses and abuses of power, a story that is timely in any era.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“What we might hope for from a film bold enough to call itself CHAPPAQUIDDICK is a payoff equal to the promise of that charged name. We get a tingle here and there, but no real jolt from this effort.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston
