‘Mass’ Review: Devastating Drama Unfolds Between Four Parents in the Aftermath of a School Shooting [Sundance 2021]

Fran Kranz made a breakthrough performance as the amusing stoner in the meta horror movie Cabin in the Woods. Now a new chapter in Kranz’s career has triumphantly begun with his quiet, confident, and devastating feature writing and directorial debut Mass. Mass takes its time digging into intimate drama, slowly ramping up its tension and trepidation. But as the story unfolds across pages of gut-wrenching, emotional dialogue, four parents confront the trauma and grief of the tragedy that connects...

This Week In Trailers: Cowboys, Breaking News in Yuba County, Dear Comrades!, The Dissident, Lapsis

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we free ourselves from convention, lay some cable, get kidnapped, find ourselves fighting in Russia, and see how far up the governm...

‘Rebecca’ Review: Ben Wheatley’s Slick Update on the Gothic Romance Fails to Thrill

It’s never a good idea to remake Hitchcock, even though several have tried. And while Ben Wheatley‘s new Netflix Rebecca is technically not a remake, but rather a new adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s classic novel, it can’t escape the Hitchock film’s legacy. Like its main character, Rebecca is living in the shadow of its predecessor. To Wheatley’s credit, he doesn’t try to ape Hitchcock in any way, shape, or form. But, oddly enough, he doesn’t bring much new life to the proceedings, either. Fo...

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Season 4 Teaser: Change Never Comes Easy

“Change never comes easy,” June muses in The Handmaid’s Tale season 4 teaser, which feels like a bit of an understatement for the bleak, slow-moving dystopian Hulu series based on the novel by Margaret Atwood. But the plodding drama series promises the long-awaited revolution against the totalitarian regime of Gilead, though we will still have to wait until next year to see it play out.
