B 76% Spiral (2019) Timely in many ways, including a message about it being unsafe "for people to stand out... in this country," the movie is another frightening case of the more things change, the more they stay the same. - Bay Area Reporter EDIT

C+ 71% Followed (2020) You might be thinking, "If I never have to see another found-footage, shaky-camera horror flick, I'd be content for the rest of my days." But if you have to watch one more, you could do worse than Followed. - Bay Area Reporter EDIT

A- 94% Yes, God, Yes (2020) Yes, God, Yes is one of the funniest and smartest comedies of 2020. It goes a long way in establishing Dyer as a talented young actress and Maine as a writer/director worth following. - Bay Area Reporter EDIT
