LATEST REVIEWS
MONSTER WITH A THOUSAND HEADS, A
"Getting decent health care is a battle."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "As a strong proponent of the seventy-five minute thriller, I would likely approve of "A Monster with a Thousand Heads" even if it didn't turn out to be a quietly twisty film that is not just admirably compact, but which also uses that efficiency to keep a familiar story feeling new."

MOUNTAINS MAY DEPART
"Good in both past, present, and future."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "The future is just as much a part of our lives as the past, but it often makes storytellers wary. Who wants to remembered for guessing wrong on details, let alone major happenings? Is risky, but sometimes your story has to extend that far in order to fully express what is teller is getting at, the way "Mountains May Depart" ("Shan he gu ren" in Mandarin) does. Its unconventional third act is not all that makes it an intriguing and noteworthy drama, though it is an essential part of the story." (more)
EYES OF MY MOTHER, THE
"A different look at a different sort of character."
3 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2016: Festivals mostly program their horror movie sidebars to start or end at midnight, figuring that the long day will have the audience in prime position to have their weary heads messed with. Sometimes, I wonder if a film like this one might be better suited to an earlier hour, when those who come out are ready to talk about what was going on rather than just side on their way to the bed or the bar. Filmmaker Nicolas Pesce has put together an interesting look at what makes certain characters in the genre tick, even if it's just an average thriller." (more)
FIVE NIGHTS IN MAINE
"Not exactly Vacationland."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2016: Growing up in Maine (though born elsewhere), I've heard variations of the "almost a Mainer" joke that one character tells all my life, although it seldom seemed as pointedly exclusionary as it does in "Five Nights in Maine". Then again, I am not nearly so obviously "from away" as someone like this film's visitor is, even if the story doesn't always play into that as a mostly-quiet tale of grief." (more)
