"But then, what would make me one?"

Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT THE 2016 FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: How to describe "I Am Not a Serial Killer", a film that often seems to have the wrong lurid title for the story is actually telling to an extent that it almost seems like misdirection? You almost have to double something together, saying is the familiar story of a kid who discovers something no adult will believe in his neighborhood filtered through the likes of "Let the Right One In", with just enough modern parental paranoia thrown in for good measure. And then, once those parts are put together, the title may not describe them or the whole, but it certainly speaks about the stitching." (more)
"The advanced class."

Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT THE 2016 FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: The first "Assassination Classroom" is a decent enough movie hurt in a big way by needing to reset at the end so that this one could be made, so it's fairly good news that the filmmakers stick to the two-film plan and let "Graduation" play out to to a fairly conclusive finale rather than try and find ways to extend the series indefinitely. Though more plot-oriented than the opener, it's a satisfying conclusion an entertaining series." (more)
"The tricky work of discovering yourself in middle age."

Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT THE 2016 FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: Filmmaker Tobias Nölle initially entices viewers with a version of "Aloys" that is not quite so internal, with a mystery to sole and perhaps an unnerving way of things playing out, before settling into something that better matches its withdrawn title character, and it's the mark of how well he handles the film that this never feels like a bait-and-switch; it smoothly moves into more reflective territory while still being more interesting to watch than just a man lost in self-contemplation."

"A couple cute Polish mermaids gets me in the theater for something weird."
3 stars
Jay Seaver says... "SCREENED AT THE 2016 FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL: "The Lure" includes what is thus far one of my favorite moments of the festival, when a mermaid who is starting to follow the story of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid" fairly closely rolls her eyes at her sister's worries about where that leads, saying it's "just a superstition". The movie's at its best when it's able to be as untethered from expectations as something described as a Polish period horror musical should be; it's less exciting when it opts to follow the template."
