If you’ve ever been a 17-ye...

There are so many podcasts out there that it can be really, really hard to decide what to tune into each week. I realized mo...

Although the LGBTQ Kenyan film “Rafiki” was banned in its home country by its ratings board before it screened at Cannes last week, director Wanuri Kahiu and her collaborators received support from a different government film agency earlier today—the Kenyan Film Commission.

In a press conference in Nairobi, chairman Christoph...

If you’ve seen a “horse movie” before, you’ll probably think you know what to expect from LEAN ON PETE—namely a PG family-friendly tearjerker filled with cute kids and shiny horses that winds up being incredibly uplifting and life-affirming. But this isn’t just any horse movie—it’s an R-rated A24 horse movie directed by Andrew...

Somewhere within the carefully art-directed, incredibly detail-oriented, wildly filthy FLOWER lies a bud of genius—the film that made its debut at Tribeca last year swings for the fences with its particular blend of pitch-black comedy and has a talented cast of performers that almost pulls it off. Unfortunately it’s wrapped ti...

I don't know about you, but one of my biggest resolutions for 2018 is to watch as many films made by women as humanly possible. And to aid myself (and hopefully you) in this endeavor, I've begun to round up all of the movies I've come across directed and/or written by female-identified filmmakers that are set to be released so...

1. SUPER DARK TIMES: When I saw SUPER DARK TIMES at Fantastic Fest in a midnight slot, I had no idea what to expect—and was truly blown away. Kevin Phillips’s directorial debut is insanely engrossing from the jump, setting the tone with a nightmarish opening sequence I won’t soon be forgetting. This is the side of high school...
