6/10 No Score Yet Amazônia Groove (2019) This is a delightful journey. It doesn't quite qualify as a film, playing more like a collection of videos and interviews, but if you have the time and don't mind the slower pace, it's an enriching diversion. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 54% Yardie (2019) Yardie is a ripping classic gangster tale done right, but that's only part of the appeal. It goes beyond the narrative into full cultural immersion with music as the window into a time and place. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 56% Touch Me Not (2019) Rather than explore titillations and diverse sexual interests, Pintilie guts the whole notion of sex for pleasure in mise-en-scène of dysfunction that evoke, in turns, body horror, apathy, and shame. - Film Threat EDIT

No Score Yet The Challenger Disaster (2018) My hat is off to VonMinden for creating a film that works so well for so little budget, and for bringing light to part of a 30-year-old story that isn't as well known as the event itself but still just as relevant. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet The Witch Hunters (Zlogonje) (2019) The film is appealing to adults and older kids. Younger ones might find some of the material too intense... - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 43% Lost Holiday (2019) ...a millennial mess with an admittedly solid core of story that shows potential, but sinks under the weight of the "whatever." - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 100% Selah and the Spades (2019) The level of craft in Poe's feature debut exceeds that of directors with more experience and portends a long career with more wonderful art to come. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 79% The Death of Dick Long (2019) As dumb as the main characters are, the film itself is very clever. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 78% The Wolf Hour (2019) Watts has always been willing to go all-in for a role, and her performance is riveting as June, who is practically vibrating with anxiety and covered in sweat for the whole film. - Film Threat EDIT

87% Shooting the Mafia (2019) The mafia murder images are stomach turning, viewers take note. Letizia talks about her life at great length and some of it is redundant, but she is always charming and inspirational, living as a strong, independent woman in a crushing patriarchy. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 100% Snowflake (Schneeflöckchen) (2017) At a three-way intersection between Pulp Fiction, John Dies at the End, and Boondock Saints in a universe David Lynch would give his blessing to, lies the frenetic twisted German insanity of Schneeflöckchen. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 93% Don't Come Back from the Moon (2019) You may find a second viewing helpful to take it all in, but this one is worth the effort. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Welcome to the Men's Group (2018) Films promoting self-improvement are suspect as they are prone to being preachy...this film misses that mark, despite some engaging moments in the attempt. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Alone We Fight (2018) Alone We Fight is sluggish and muted, offers no compelling characters and the story drags on to no particular conclusion. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet Texas Cotton (2018) Texas Cotton echoes the style of many western-set films that have gone before. Russell blends crime drama, country humor, and cornpone indie-style into a crackerjack of a fun movie. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 61% Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) As with all dramatized stories of real lives, artistic license hammers messy reality into a watchable film. Dramas are not documentaries. The essential emotions of Freddie's life and the history of the band are here. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Holden On (2017) This movie is a personal passionate tribute to someone whose life was pulled away before it even started because of a terrible mental illness. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 No Score Yet At Your Own Risk (2018) They are a little late to the party regarding relevant social commentary, but it's an entertaining feature nonetheless and worth the watch for the personal drama between the main characters. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 86% Mountain (2018) The actors sell it amazingly well without words. Wam Siluka, Jr in the lead is particularly striking in his ability to register nuances in facial expression to fill the verbal gap. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet The Dawnseeker (2018) After 90 minutes trying to determine why this film exists, I've got nothing. I took a cheap CGI plasma rifle bullet for you, dear viewer. Learn from my mistake. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 79% The Forest of the Lost Souls (A Floresta das Almas Perdidas) (2018) While the runtime is a bit short at just a little over an hour, it works well. There's no wasted motion or extraneous dialog. The film is exactly what it should be. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet 6 Dynamic Laws for Success (In Life, Love & Money) (2018) Black and white in Indie film has become a gimmicky and pretentious signature at this point, but director Gregory Bayne uses it here to great effect to maximize his production value and give the film an interesting noir patina. - Film Threat EDIT

5/10 No Score Yet How Long Will I Love U (2018) The film begins with a cool initial conceit, but is then executed out of step with the American audience, immediately dating itself. Perhaps we've done enough time travel for now. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet No Alternative (2018) Dickerson seamlessly blends a coming-of-age tragedy with the transitioning music scene of the mid '90's and a push for awareness of the stigma around mental illness. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 58% Always at the Carlyle (2018) I highly recommend spending time with Always at the Carlyle. There's great joy in the history with the Carlyle staff, music over the years, and fun times had in one of the most amazing of places. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 71% Flames (2017) Taking a step back: the last half hour saves the film, framing the relationship and the story with narrative distance and objectivity. If you were stuck watching only the first hour it would be infuriatingly pointless. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Goran (2016) Goran is a tight, darkly humorous, extremely violent drama about passions run amok in the Croatian highland winter when a birthday party goes horribly awry. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 60% American Circumcision (2018) If you're a person who cleaves to evidence based science, it's a hard film to watch because the scientific method takes a beating in all the emotional histrionics. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Ravens (2017) Grey death hangs over this film as though the reaper himself were lounging just off-camera. Skillful cinematography does frame those grey shades of the decaying farm beautifully. - Film Threat EDIT
