Empathy, Inc. (Empathetic Exploitation but in Sci-Fi)

  Imagine a virtual reality where you can smell and touch. Commit murder without repercussions, indulge in your deepest fantasies without waking up sore, cleaning up the mess or checking for an STD. Empathy, Inc. is the second film from director Yedidya Gorsetman with writer Mark Leidner, a brilliant sci-fi thriller that takes a look at our obsession with […]

MFKZ (GTA San Andreas Goes Sci-Fi)

MFKZ (GTA San Andreas Goes Sci-Fi)

  MFKZ, co-directed by Guillaume Renard and Shoujirou Nishimi, is a lot of things crammed into 90 minutes of kinetic animated insanity. The nod to anime is rather overt, but there’s also an influence of alien sci-fi, call-outs to the GTA games and various elements of hip hop culture with a dose of the sort […]

Punk Never Ends! (Heroin Crust in Slovakia)

  Those who enjoy soap-opera drama of people’s misery should grab a glass of wine and popcorn for the feature debut from director Juro Šlauka, Punk Never Ends! (Punk je hned!), a bleak, realistic look into drug addiction. It’s the perfect film to let kids know the glamorous life they could lead if they became an […]

Balcony (Self-Loathing Identity Collapse)

  Phew, this one is a killer. Man... Balcony is one of those films that doesn't tell you much about its real meaning until the ending. You think you got it all worked out. You're sure of it. This is a touching glimmer of hope in all the human garbage, you think, and then it […]

The Spadina House (Lol Victorian Superpowers)

  Goddamn I can't stop laughing at this. And that probably makes you think I hate it, but in actuality it's something else, trust me. The Spadina House proved quite difficult to review because it's rather simple to blow its cover in a second (I actually did already, you just didn't notice), so I'm conflicted […]

Do No Harm (Hippocratic Slaughter Oath)

  God this is such a great film. I knew it was going to be, there was no way a doctor standing with a depressed glare at the camera, covered in blood whilst holding a scalpel, was going to be anything but graphic (and thus very good). That stare got me sold. But what sold […]

Nachtstück (Creepy Woodland Being Oppression)

Nachtstück (Creepy Woodland Being Oppression)

  WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF. I caught a few shots of this animated short and knew it was going to freak me the hell out even before I watched it. The drab colors, the indeterminate bestiary of forest creatures that seem to tick off several different the phobias on the triggering checklist, the darkness, the loathing and oppression. […]

Freight (Crushing Sci-Fi Existentialism)

  It saddens me when I see such great, short films receive so little attention, and when they do on bigger sites it's another drop in the constant stream of digital vomit bigger names spew out at too fast a rate to notice all for the sake of quantity in this age of consume at […]

Exorcism (Paranormal Blair Witch in a Croatian Basement)

  Aww geez, a demonic possession film? Well, it had better feature someone’s head rotating 180 degrees, at least. While Dalibor Matanić’s Exorcism (Egzorcizam in Croatian, 2017) unfortunately does not feature anyone’s head spinning in half circles, it does nonetheless serve as a worthwhile addition to the expanding library of demonic possession films. Shot on […]

The Blissful Accidental Death (Memories Hurt)

  After the painfully cocky, and very French, rejection from Cannes we realized we'll always be bottom-feeding worms. That's fine, because most art films don't make any money anyway. Shit, neither do we... Well forget that aborted attempt at an intro, because this is the beginning of more film coverage, especially shorts, which are grossly […]
