6/10 No Score Yet After America (2021) Yuzna's intentions are good, but co-opting the Black Lives Matter theme for this film is sure to be taken as an inappropriate grab for attention. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 89% M.C. Escher: Journey to Infinity (2018) It's hard to imagine not falling under its mesmerizing spell with the same wonder that one would gaze on an Escher print and feel their mind slowly becoming part of the pattern depicted. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 81% Wild Indian (2021) No one involved comes through unscathed, including the viewer, but it opens a window to understand the pain that's been inflicted on indigenous peoples. It's a positive step for anyone willing to take it. - Film Threat EDIT

10/10 89% Bring Your Own Brigade (2021) Walker offers little in the way of hope that Californians will ever accept anything less than the fiction of complete dominance over the land and the forces of nature, despite repeated catastrophes. This film is required viewing. - Film Threat EDIT

7/10 25% Hillbilly Elegy (2020) As a memoir of the journey of one person, Hillbilly Elegy works. As an indictment of Appalachia, it's pure BS. - Film Threat EDIT

6/10 No Score Yet Journey to the Center of the Earth (1988) It's bad. Whether it's "so-bad-it's-good" is down to the viewer's tolerance/ affinity for random '80s weirdness. - Film Threat EDIT

8/10 No Score Yet Muskie Point (2020) The low-budget results in shootouts and fist-fights that go on too long, but the reason to watch the film, and you should, is the dialogue. It's sharp, witty, and well thought out. - Film Threat EDIT

9/10 No Score Yet Keyboard Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Story (2019) Glenn-Copeland speaking in the film never seems angry, never rushed, never less than amused, and composed. He is the living image of the peaceful music he creates. - Film Threat EDIT
