BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 08/30/2019

Lauren 'Lolo' Spencer and Chris Galust make a paper airplane in the movie Give Me LibertyGIVE ME LIBERTY

“This is a film with many uncomfortable passages, and it has a way of telling us its truths with too little varnish. But its comforts have a rough-hewn charm, from a paper cone used to play a vinyl record to a suite of understated, naturalistic performances that keep us engaged even when the film stumbles.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network

Monica Bellucci leans on Ben Kingsley in the movie A Spider in the WebA SPIDER IN THE WEB

“There are good spy movies out there — there are even good, or at least entertaining, movies about the Mossad, and about the intersection between big business and authoritarian regimes. A SPIDER IN THE WEB gets too wrapped up in its own sticky elaborations to qualify.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE Media Network
