LATEST REVIEWS
SUPER DARK TIMES
"Surviving adolescence intact is no small challenge."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT THE 2017 FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: I coincidentally went to my twenty-five-year high-school reunion the weekend before seeing "Super Dark Times", spending some time laughing at friends' stories about events that could have gone wrong in similarly horrific ways but never did, and while that doesn't quite line my timeline up with this 1990s-set story, it had me a little more open to this sort of throwback than I usually am. Which is good, because though it's got a few bumps toward the end, I'd hate to dismiss a pretty good movie because I'm usually more interested in the present." (more)
LANDLINE
"Doesn't quite have it wired."
3 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2017: It wouldn't be a proper film festival without a movie in which New Yorkers did nothing but fret about their relationships, and as those go, this one isn't so bad. It's got a few funny moments, and there's a nice chemistry between Jenny Slate and Abby Quinn as well-cast sisters. Folks don't wind up seeming so self-absorbed that one winds up hating them and wanting to get out of the theater at any cost, which is my usual reaction. That's a bit of a win." (more)
TRIP TO SPAIN, THE
"It's nice to take a trip every once in a while."
4 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2017: I am tempted to see just how much of my review for 2014's "The Trip to Italy" I could cut and paste into this one because it still applies, maybe changing a few details. Michael Winterbottom, Rob Brydon, and Steve Coogan have not shaken things up here at all, sticking close to the formula that made the first two "Trip" films (and presumably the television series that the films are edited down from) work, and that's not a problem at all for those that simply want more of them."

GOOK
"Bringing what was a side-story on the news to the fore."
5 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2017: You may feel uncomfortable asking for a ticket for this one by name, and knowing there's a scene that explains the title's etymology may not be much help. It's absolutely worth doing if you get the chance to do so, and if saying the title aloud stops you, then that's what the touchscreen kiosks at the front of the theater are for. It's a pretty terrific little film that does an excellent job of zooming in on what felt like a sidebar to a bigger news story and making it the focus." (more)
