ART AND CRAFT

4 Stars
Year Released: 2014
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 89 minutes

IN THEATERS! It’s a fascinating film, and it gets your mind spinning. Not just about art, or the art world, but everything from mental illness to what it means to be a criminal. Definitely worth a look…

REPORTING ON THE TIMES

1 Stars
Year Released: 2014
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 18 minutes

According to the film, only 26 articles related to the Holocaust received front page placement between 1939 and 1945 – the majority of coverage on this subject was buried within the newspaper, and the film states the newspaper intentionally used anodyne language to scrub down the severity of the war crimes being committed by the Nazi forces…

ABCS OF DEATH 2

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2014
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 125 minutes

ON VOD! This time out I decided to stream the film while drinking a few pints of local craft beer and, frankly, this is probably the best way to enjoy an onslaught of silly, gory, fucked up short films…

HARMONTOWN

5 Stars
Year Released: 2014
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 95 minutes

IN THEATERS! I felt sad, happy, angry, depressed, amused; I think I might’ve almost teared up at one point. When the film ended and I walked out of the theater, I felt as emotionally exhausted as I’ve ever felt in my life. It was absolutely draining…

THE ABDUCTION OF ZACK BUTTERFIELD

2 Stars
Year Released: 2014
MPAA Rating: Unrated

It’s provocative subject matter for sure, and it requires a deft hand to make something powerful, and that just doesn’t happen here…

TWO NIGHT STAND

0.5 Stars
Year Released: 2014

THE ROCKTRONIX – “MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION”

3 Stars
Year Released: 2014
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 43 minutes

If you’re into the music, though, the film sustains its running time. If their groove is not your thing, however, then the documentary does not offer up anything else to keep your interest…

REBOUND

3 Stars
Year Released: 2014
MPAA Rating: Unrated
