BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP 10/25

12 YEARS A SLAVETWELVESLAVE

“So profoundly powerful that other movies touching on or dealing directly with slavery seem weak by comparison.” - David Riedel, Raw Denim

“Treating other people as lower than shit is a tenet of this country’s history, and we need to see it in all its ugly truth.” - David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter

“Even for someone as talented as McQueen, this is a step forward in craft.” – Andrew Crump, A Constant Visual Feast

“The desire to attain permanent fixture status, both in American History and Film Studies courses, is palpable.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

“Remarkably, possessed of a transcendent lyricism that allows us to breathe in the suffering first hand, the horror resonating through our consciousness by way of our bones.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

“If 12 YEARS A SLAVE doesn’t become required viewing in our schools and LINCOLN does, the understanding future generations have of slavery is doomed.” – Kris Jenson, Dig Boston 

COUNSELORTHE COUNSELOR

“It’s like getting a fortune cookie that reads, ‘Life is meaningless and then you die.’ Whether you agree with the message or not, is that really what you go to the movies to hear?” – Dan Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

BADGRANDPAJACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA

 

“It’s still enjoyable, sure — it’s just not so revolutionary anymore.” – Jake Mulligan, EDGE

“Apparently there’s always an audience for a joke involving explosive flatulence.” – Dan Kimmel, North Shore Movies

 

 

ALL LOST

ALL IS LOST

“Robert Redford has long been one of our greatest movie stars. He’s never been one of our greatest actors, but here he rises to the challenge.” - David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter
