COMMUNION

4.5 Stars
Year Released: 2013
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 101 minutes

What’s particularly significant is the way Hall is able to get into our psyches via the vehicle of his two lead characters. And like any great filmmaker, he causes us to question not only what a belief in God really means, but also what is tangible in this world of our own making.

UNITED

5 Stars
Year Released: 2012
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 9 minutes

You see, we never once catch a glimmer of the couple’s conversation, nor do we catch a corner-of-the- eye glimpse of their faces. For that matter, we don’t really ever see anyone above the knees, and are pretty much left to our imaginations as to the rest…

OUT OF ORDER

2 Stars
Year Released: 2012
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 67 minutes

As with any movie, the charm of “Out of Order” is purely subjective, and will appeal to certain groups just as strongly as it will scare off others.
